Cressbrook Dam Re-Opens To The Public

Cressbrook Dam has re-opened to the public for recreational purposes  after testing shows water meets recognised safety standards.

Toowoomba Regional Council Environment and Community Portfolio Leader Cr Tim McMahon said Council has removed  closure signage.
“The campground at Cressbrook Dam will remain closed in line with the Queensland Government’s Roadmap to Easing COVID-19 restrictions,” Cr McMahon said. “Apart from the camping ground, residents can use other barbecue and public amenities during day opening hours at Cressbrook Dam.”

“Users will still need to adhere to relevant Queensland Health requirements with a maximum gathering of ten persons permitted under Stage One easing of restrictions.

“If residents are considering any recreational activities, social distancing measures must be maintained.

“Council thanks all residents for their very responsible actions and sensible compliance with all State and Federal Government Covid-19 directions,” Cr McMahon said.

“I remind everyone to refer to the information on updated restrictions, particularly guidelines on gatherings, provided by the State Government’s lead agency Queensland Health during the pandemic.”

TRC Water and Waste Portfolio Leader, Cr Nancy Sommerfield said Council’s Dams are a valued recreational resource, and our outdoor spaces are highly prized and well used by residents and visitors.

“Council monitors the three dams weekly for algae and numerous microbiological parameters including E.coli. We also test chemical parameters such as iron, manganese, alkalinity, hardness, ammonia, nitrate, colour, turbidity and phosphate.”
