Blue-green algae (non-toxic) bloom at Craigbourne DamPublished on Nov. 4, 2013
Tasmanian Irrigation conducts regular water quality monitoring at Craigbourne Dam. Last week (end of October 2013) the results of testing showed there was a bloom of blue-green algae at the dam.The results indicate that the bloom is currently non-toxic. Further testing will be undertaken this week (first week of November 2013)to monitor the situation. A sign has been erected at the dam to inform the public of the bloom. If the bloom turns toxic the signage will be changed to reflect this and a story will be posted on this website.
