Despite days of rain and a dreary forecast the rain cleared momentarily and the creek was clear enough for SURG members to go ahead with their planned survey and clean up at Red Rock over two October days. 

On the 12th the creek was surveyed for debris. A team of 5 divers set out four 25m transects and found very little debris.

On the 13th a team of 7 divers cleaned the creek. The majority of the debris was found upstream from the surveyed site and included a fishing net and reels, sunglasses and surprisingly two shovels. 

The sausage sizzle following the clean up was welcomed after all the hard work of the volunteers. 

Thanks to Tom for organising the event and to all the volunteers involved.
