The City has engaged a consultant to carry out a geotechnical survey along the coastline at Drummond Cove, Sunset Beach and Bluff Point. The works will involve geotechnical drilling which will begin next week. 

The purpose of the works is to identify and confirm the presence and extent of underground rock layers in the area. 

This is being done as a resulting recommendation from the Geraldton Coastal Hazard Risk Management Adaptation Planning (CHRMAP) Report which was adopted by Council in November 2018. 

The findings of this investigation, along with other recommendations of the CHRMAP Report, will help the City develop the necessary adaption measures for coastal erosion and inundation.

Works will take place from Monday 15 April to Wednesday 17 April 2019. Members of the community are requested to exercise caution and obey all warning signs and directions from authorised City personnel and contractors.

The City apologises for any inconvenience these works may cause. If you have any queries please contact the City on (08) 9956 6600 or email
