A group of local divers recently got together to clean up Point Lowly.

The group participated in a KESAB-sponsored cleanup focused on the the areas around the steps at Black Point and around the ramp at Stony Point.

A full trailer load of rubbish was collected, made up of 20 bags of plastics, bottles and containers.

Some larger items were also removed including three lounge seats.

The Whyalla City Council supplied bags and gloves for the rubbish collection, meat for a barbecue, and a pass to take the rubbish to the local depot.

The cleanup will add to the already completed improvements for diver access at Stony Point. 

These improvements include smoothing of the walkway into the water, installation of a chain handrail, straightening of the bollards and placement of gearing up benches.

The improvement work was done by local volunteers with equipment donated by local firm SeeUs Maintenance.

Whyalla Diving Services owner Tony Bramley said he was hopeful the coming cuttlefish season would be ‘the best yet’.

”The return to a full number of cuttlefish in the aggregation last year was very encouraging,” he said.​
