Sewage Leak Closes Nelson Bay beaches

Port Stephens Council has closed a number of beaches across Nelson Bay due to a sewage leak.

A sewage main was damaged during excavation work on Monday morning along Teramby Road, Nelson Bay.

Port Stephens Council said the leak was contained within the harbour and Hunter Water was working to repair the damaged sewage main.

Beaches from Nelson Bay marina to Fly Point, including the marina and SPLASH Waterpark have been closed for the day as a precaution.
