Sluice gate opening tonight
The Ministry of Environment and National Beautification advises that the sluice gate at the Graeme Hall Swamp, Christ Church, will be opened tonight, Friday, August 23. This urgent action is necessary to reduce the high water levels and to re-balance the swamp.
As a result, Worthing Beach will be closed to the public from 8 p.m. tonight, until noon tomorrow.
Red flags, which indicate no swimming, will be in place along the beach, and bathers are asked to adhere to the flags and any other signs erected by the NCC. (BGIS)
