At certain times we may need to close a lake area for your safety. If a closure occurs, the area that is unable to be accessed will be marked below with a cross.
Cooby Dam is closed for all boating, fishing and picnic activities. Each week water is tested to ensure it meets safety standards for recreational activity (direct contact without water treatment). Cyanobacteria (Blue Green Algae) toxin exceed acceptable limits of 1.0μg/L. Daily monitoring will continue.

Each week we test the water quality of our dams to ensure they meet the appropriate standards* for water-based recreational activity. This takes into account direct contact with the water without water treatment. This process includes testing for the presence of algal and bacterial organisms and the toxins produced when these organisms die off.
When the water quality drops below the required standards, we close the dam for affected activities.
Required standards include (but are not limited to):
* Australian Guidelines for Managing Risks in Recreational Water and the Australian Drinking Water Guidelines
