Improving the water quality of Emily Bay, Norfolk Island 

About the report 

In late 2020, Parks Australia commissioned a water engineering firm, Bligh Tanner, to investigate possible short-term options for preventing the entry of polluted surface water into Norfolk Marine Park at Emily and Slaughter Bay. The report examines various options and suggests that ‘no regrets’ measures like pumping out leaky septics and the construction of leaky weirs to slow the water could be explored.
