Blue-green algae (non-toxic) bloom at Craigbourne Dam
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.
