No tsure if it is related to the works at Betty's Jetty but...
I noticed this morning a large and spreading plume of white in the river off the river wall at Langley Park.
I had a closer look and saw a steady upwelling of water - a couple of feet in diameter - with something that could have been disolved clay or limestone or some other creamy while particulate. From what is probably a pipe under the water about a meter from the river wall in line with Hill Street.
Anyone have any ideas? Anyone know what outlet is at that spot?

My guess is runoff from the flooding at Langley Park earthworks that has the disturbed limestone and sand consistency of the work at Barrack Street.
Storm drains on either side of Riverside drive at that spot are flooded and massive waves of that slush spraying up as cars go by on the left lanes in each direction.
I imagine they have a storm drain outlet to the river and that's where the cloudy pollution is concentrated.
In this frame on the left near sign post is the amber beacon of a tractor/utility at the earth works I believe.
Currently Barrack St 'shared path' which is our access point into the Perth CBD from Riverside:
At least they have their priorities correct, the fencing is for Octoberfest and it may be interesting viewing watching drunk people navigating the fence holdings.
Ahh so that's what all those poratloos were for around there!
I presume for the other event they didn't have the portaloos but they did have trees = black privacy screen around "eco sustainable perma-loos"
Giood to hear, Sinner.
I'm hearing rumours that William St will reopen this weekend. I hope that's true as that's my preferred way of getting to/from the Narrows. Just hope there's a way of getting from road to path.
Don't know where you heard that from. Add another week at least.
So, at some time, Riverside will be closed, and we will be directed around the area onto William St/The Esplanade/Barrack St.
I was hopeful this would be the inner route, so we don't have to cross any traffic intersections - make sense?
So, last week, installed on Barrack St:

Let's stick it in the middle of currently a footpath, and hopefully in the near future a shared path. Good one.
Well its open now, as is William Street. Nice shoulder inbound from Pt Lewis but no safe way to get there (both lanes head towards the freeway).
Didn't look like there was any easy way to get from William Street southbound onto the foreshore RSP either. Bugger. Nice little squeeze point just south of The Esplanade so if you're going to ride it, claim the lane.
Had a go this morning - went south down William St and tried to get to the PSP. Had to jump the kerb and cover some grass. Looks like there might be a spot for pedestrians to get to the PSP, but not an actual PSP link. Where the traffic light pole is on the south side is a graded pdestrian landing zone, but there's a large grassy area between it and the PSP.
If you can handle the short section around the right-angle bend in mixed traffic, there's a good shoulder all the way to the Narrows Bridge and a kerb ramp to either get on Mounts Bay path or turn right, across the road, to go up to the Narrows.
Inbound there's no safe way of getting to William Street, though, without jumping kerbs and grass.
