Central Coast Council: Terrigal and coastal lagoons audit and water quality improvement program
The Terrigal and coastal lagoons audit project is an innovative partnership between Central Coast Council and the NSW Government to address the lack of formal processes to assist councils with improving recreational water quality in coastal environments. The audit developed methods to research, investigate and improve recreational water quality in receiving waters experiencing microbial pollution. From January 2019, the audit successfully identified pollution hotspots, inspected 52.9 km of sewerage pipes and identified and remediated 14.2km of sewer.
