PEOPLE playing in the foam at Alexandra Headland can rest in the knowledge there have been no sewage overflows in the area, Unitywater said today.

Council and Unitywater signs have been erected at other beaches where sewage overflows occurred during the storm, a spokesman said.

"Signage warns people not to swim after a high rainfall event, due to contaminated storm water run-off which may include sewage," the spokesman said.

"All sewage pump stations are designed to overflow during severe weather events at a controlled discharge point.    

"Overflows that occur near waterways are managed to reduce the impact to the surrounding environment.

"Sewage that does make it to beaches becomes heavily diluted and usually dissipates within 24 hours."
