Glenelg River jetties underwater - Hazardous Conditions

The Glenelg River mouth is closed by a sand bank due to natural processes.  The closed mouth is causing the water level in the Glenelg River to rise, resulting in some Jetties, Landings and Boat Ramps that are attached to campsites and visitor sites to become submerged.
Sites located in the Lower Glenelg National Park and sites near the river mouth/estuary area of Discovery Bay Coastal Park are impacted.  Campsites are not currently impacted, only the waterway assets including jetties, landings, and boat ramps.

Partially submerged or submerged water based assets are hazardous to park users.  Fluctuating water levels can cause silt and mud to accumulate on deck boards causing slippery conditions.  Deck boards can become loose or dislodge when rising water puts pressure on jetties causing gaps and trip hazards that cannot be seen underwater.  

Park users including water craft users are advised not to use partially or submerged jetties and landings for their safety.
