The Cronulla Rock Pools are a much loved swimming location for residents and visitors alike. Cronulla Rock Pool South is an Olympic sized tidal pool adjacent to the Esplanade. The pool was designed to naturally flush by the action of tide and wave overtopping the seawall to maintain water quality.
However, with changing seasonal tides and ocean conditions, the pool frequently fills with sand and seaweed reducing the available water depth. This continual in-filling necessitates pool closure and mechanical removal of the sand to re-establish water depths. Due to ocean conditions, in-filling of the pool can occur over a matter of weeks or remain clear for many months.
Each cleaning requires the removal of approximately 2000-2500 m3 of sands and requires regular pool closure.
Cronulla Rock Pool (South) will be closed for maintenance and cleaning from 14-18 January, during this time Council will also be removing the remaining two wave ramps on the ocean side of the pool to mitigate sand ingress into the pool .
