EMERGENCY services will undertake a clean-up in Western Port near Sandstone Island after six 44-gallon drums with unknown contents were allegedly dumped.
The CFA said on Friday there was “no immediate threat“, but further investigation would take place.
The Coast Guard on Friday issued a ‘Potential Hazard to Navigation’ alert, informing people heading out on Western Port be on alert for the floating drums.
The drums are located between Crib Point Terminal, Hastings Channel and Sandstone Island.
The drums are believed to have been dumped by an unknown offender between three and four weeks ago.
Witnesses have told The News a person was seen allegedly dumping the drums.
The Port of Hastings Corporation was contacted for comment. The Port of Hastings is a security regulated port and has a Maritime Security Plan as required by the Maritime Transport and Offshore Facilities Security Act.
