Rainfall data has been used to predict the likelihood of bacterial contamination at beaches in the Illawarra region.

The NSW Government's Beachwatch, advises that pollution is likely at Bellambi and Corrimal beaches, with possible pollution at Bulli beach.

As a general precaution, swimming at beaches in the Illawarra region should be avoided for up to one day after heavy rainfall or for as long as stormwater is present. The most obvious signs of stormwater pollution are water discolouration as well as debris in the water and on the tide line.
