Dams hope for a top up this weekend

THE rainfall forecast for the next 7 days across Seqwater’s dam catchments is less than 80 mm.

Almost all of this rainfall is expected to occur over this weekend alone.

Based on the current status of the dam catchments and the rainfall forecast, some runoff is expected into our dams over the next 7 days.


This runoff may result in some of Seqwater’s ungated dams that are currently at or near full capacity overflowing and spilling.

These dams may include Borumba Dam, Wappa Dam and Lake MacDonald Dam.

Seqwater maintains a 24/7 watching brief on the dam catchments and closely monitors dam levels, rainfall and the potential consequences of inflows into the dams.

Information about the major dams is updated on the Seqwater website around 9am Monday to Friday, with information about the smaller dams updated at least weekly.
