TRC prepares to re-open Region’s Dams

Toowoomba Regional Council (TRC) is working to re-open the Region’s three dams in Cooby, Cressbrook and Perseverance for recreation activities as soon as practicable following recent wet weather.

TRC Parks and Recreation Services portfolio leader Cr Tim McMahon said Perseverance has now opened to approved user groups but Cooby and Cressbrook Dams currently remain closed to the public as at Friday 27 May.

“At Cooby and Cressbrook debris from the recent rain events is currently being cleared and key infrastructure checked. These dam areas will be opened as soon as possible to allow secondary contact activities such as fishing and boating.

“For now, we ask the public to monitor Council’s web site for the status of each dam. All dams are expected to reopen soon in the absence of further heavy rainfall inflows,” Cr McMahon said.
