sewage release at colmslie


Recommended Posts

⚠ A wastewater release has occurred into the Brisbane River at Morningside after wet weather during critical essential works.
Please temporarily avoid any direct contact with the impacted part of the Brisbane River between Vic Lucas Park at Bulimba and Colmslie Recreation Reserve in Murarrie.
The release occurred through a ‘temporary emergency relief overflow structure’. The emergency relief point is used to protect homes and businesses from overflow when too much stormwater enters the wastewater system.
We’ve taken immediate action and have notified the Department of Environment and Science, and are carrying out water sampling.
If you are concerned about your health after coming into contact with wastewater, get in touch with your doctor or call 13 Health (13 432 584).
We’ll let you know when you can resume usual contact with the water again, once our testing shows that the impacts from the release have been resolved.
