Some members of the community, including children, are putting their safety at risk to gain entry to Moodlu Quarry.
Seqwater, in partnership with Unitywater, has double-fenced the quarry and provided around the clock security. This is due to the instability of the cliff faces/edges of the quarry and the toxicity levels of the water.
The storage is a closed system and the water toxicity does not pose any risk to the surrounding groundwater or environment, however, it is not safe for swimming or other water-based activities.
Despite the measures taken by Seqwater and Unitywater to secure the area, there are still members of the community who are illegally accessing the quarry at great personal risk.
Seqwater urges residents and members of the public to report any incidents of people seen in the quarry by calling 1800 771 497, or Police (000) if someone is in immediate danger.
Signage is in place around the quarry fence which explain the risks since May/June 2012.
