Tallebudgera Creek is open after council Water Testing gives all clear.

Council today issued a statement stating that the Tallebudgera Creek has re-opened and that several water tests conducted over the past 72 hours have come back all clear.

Residents and beachgoers in Tallebudgera had been advised to avoid a section of the popular creek after a sewage spill prompted its closure for precautionary measures. The affected area stretched from Schuster Park to Tallebudgera Creek Beach, right next to the Neptune Royal Surf Lifesaving Club.

The Gold Coast City Council responded to the incident on Sunday, halting the spill and initiating cleanup efforts. However, out of an abundance of caution, environmental officials decided to temporarily close the creek until water samples confirmed its safety for swimming and recreational activities.
