Water Quality Monitoring

Throughout the summer months Devonport City Council monitors water quality at popular swimming beaches around Devonport in accordance with the requirements of the Public Health Act 1997 under the Recreational Water Quality Guidelines 2007. These include:

Beaches are ‘closed where pollution events or water quality poses a risk to public health.  Signs are removed once testing results have indicated that the risks have reduced.

Beach Management

DPIPWE and Tasmania Parks & Wildlife Service manage Tasmanian beaches up to the high tide line. 

It is illegal to remove rocks, pebbles, stones, driftwood and branches from Tasmanian beaches without a permit from the Tasmania Parks & Wildlife Service.

Beach rocks and pebbles play an important role in slowing down wave action, and reducing coastal erosion. 

Logs and driftwood trap sand and provide shorebirds with shelter and a place to hide from predators.
