Swimming in sewage

DON'T get me wrong, I love the rain as much as anyone, however every time it rains Emerald Beach playground and creek becomes a danger zone.

There is a sewer pipe that overflows with raw sewage to the left of the toilet block and right near the playground.

It flows straight into Fiddaman Creek.

It has never worked properly and needs to be ripped out and started again.

This has us scratching our heads about the "green, clean" council image that's being touted.

Every time it rains one of us will contact the council and they come out and stop it overflowing until the next time it rains.

They have been deaf to our cry for a real solution.

This is an absolute disgrace and I'm sure the caravan park tourists whose children often play in the creek would be disgusted to know they are often swimming in raw sewage.

Please, please hear us!
