Sluice gate opening, beach to be closed


Share post:

The sluice gate at the Graeme Hall Swamp, Christ Church, will be opened on Tuesday.

The Ministry of Environment and National Beautification says this 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 6 p.m. tomorrow, until noon Wednesday.

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 National Conservation Commission. (BGIS)
