Algae outbreak at Toonumbar Dam
A ‘RED ALERT’ has been issued following an outbreak of blue-green algae at Toonumbar Dam, west of Kyogle. The alert was issued after a high level of algae was found in a routine sample taken from the dam on February 21.

Blue-green algae produces poisons which are harmful to humans and possibly fatal to domestic animals and fish.

“Residents and visitors should avoid all contact with the algal bloom and ensure animals such as dogs are kept away from the bloom,” said Brian Dodd, spokesperson for the North Coast Algal Coordinating Committee, which issued the alert.

Blue-green algae outbreaks at Toonumbar Dam are not common. “This outbreak is the first for quite some time,” Mr. Dodds said.
