Is this raw sewrage being discharged? ??

Post by Flickin4em » Mon Dec 17, 2018 7:23 pm

Sorry for a stupid question


But I've not really taken much notice before today. But during a lap of East pt I noticed a huge obvious black stain of gunk was in the middle of the bay for over an hour between East Pt and Nightcliff jetty area. At first I thought it was a big school of bait and a couple of birds were over it diving for stuff. But as it began to run out it stayed in the same area so I speculated that might be the end of the pipe for the ludmilla poo shooter? ????? Am I actually right? If so thats a real shame ... yuck !!!

Any further info on this subject would be great.

Meanwhile I'll be eating fish from out at Bynoe harbour and definitely not from anywhere near here or Buffalo creek thanks.

Sydney had the Bondi Cigars, Darwin's needs a band named after it.

I went flying through it in my tinny on a windy day, big mistake. The surface slick curls around in the wind to the beach sometimes, I've seen people swimming in it.

Good to see nothing has changed, except possibly the amount of waste meth being flushed out, might be some fast mackies out that way :D

The rocks are mouldy because of it. It"s been there a long time. That's why there are warnings not to eat shell fish etc

I've never ventured in there because of it and have only seen it once or twice from land.

Cheers for the reminder Flickin.
