Wave buoy equipment

Jurien wave data under threat

The collection of important live information about sea conditions off Jurien has once again been interrupted by the loss of the wave buoy equipment recording the data.

The collection of important live information about sea conditions off Jurien has once again been interrupted by the loss of the wave buoy equipment recording the data.

Department of Transport (DoT) Coastal Infrastructure General Manager Steve Jenkins said in separate incidents two wave rider buoys had gone adrift in the past year suspending data collection and endangering safety while replacements were organised.

"The Department is concerned about these losses which impacts on the safety of commercial fishermen and the recreational boating community operating out of Jurien, also DoT's work investigating water quality issues within Jurien Boat Harbour," Mr Jenkins said.

"Data from the buoys will be used in computer modelling to carefully evaluate options for the improved long term management of the harbour.

"Is it also expensive to replace the buoys, with the units costing $60,000.00."

The buoy, which records the direction of waves as well as the height, is located approximately 6.5 nautical miles west of Jurien Boat Harbour and is clearly identified as a large yellow sphere surrounded by a steel frame and fitted with a two metre antenna. There are seven similar buoys positioned along coastline with very few issues being experienced.

"Skippers navigating in the area are asked to take extra care and people should not fish within 100 metres of the buoy," Mr Jenkins said.
