WOLLONGONG City Council carried out work today to open Towradgi Lagoon to the sea.
The current water level of the lagoon is over 1.7m above sea level and the lagoon entrance is closed with a high sand berm covering the entrance.
Council staff created a small trench at the lagoon entrance following high tide. This will allow the lagoon water to run out naturally creating a larger channel. These works are required to reduce the chance of localised flooding around the lagoon should the significant rain forecast eventuate.
