Current activities

Sand pumping is currently directed to Snapper Rocks East.

Sand pumping occurs primarily at night. However, in certain circumstances such as system testing, pump maintenance and storm events, pumping may take place during the day.  When sand delivery outlets are discharging it is in your interest to keep clear for safety reasons. The individual sand delivery outlets have different uses.  Access diagram showing Basis of outlet usage (PDF 220kb).


The entrance condition is monitored continually, and entrance surveys are undertaken quarterly (January, April, July and October).

The need for dredging is assessed following each survey.
