Nudgee Beach is an outer suburb of Brisbane, Australia and it is also the name of the beach located in this suburb. It is 18 kilometers north of the Brisbane central business district where Schulz Canal enters Moreton Bay and is the closet beach to the Brisbane CBD. Brisbane airport is situated on the south side.
Nudgee Beach is named after the neighboring suburb Nudgee. Based on the 2011 Australian census, the population recorded was 261. Nearly all households in Nudgee Beach (97.0%) were separate houses, there were no semi-detached, row or terrace houses, townhouses, and no flats, units or apartments, and 3.0% were classified as “other dwellings”. Each household potentially contributes to a common annoying problem of blocked drains. Hair, soap, grease and even food often times manage to slide down the pipes causing unwanted build up eventually leading to water pushing back to the source. This does not only cause major damages in the waterlines but can also cause a health risk since these water is dirtier than the moment it slithered down the drain. The suburb is also enclosed by numerous mangroves. The landscape of the area contains a wide range of mature trees; tree roots wreak havoc with underground pipes. Tree roots are continuously looking out for sources of water and, if a pipe leaks even a little amount of water, tree roots are expected to grow into the pipe and cause a blocked drain.
Nudgee beach should remain an attraction but with the nuisance of clogged drains and pipes, it will reduce its fascination. If you need assistance on drain cleaning, you can call DCB on 07 3667 8003.
