Advice No.1
Date and Time: 4pm - 20/09/2010
Water Storage: Beardmore Dam
Location: St George
Dam Level: 100%
Full Supply Level: 81700 megalitres
Event/Issue: Water Release

As owner and operator of Beardmore Dam SunWater is advising it is making a water release.

SunWater is advising that significant inflows into the Beardmore Dam catchment resulted in the dam requiring a water release at 20/09/10 at 12pm.

Water is currently being released through an outlet gate at a rate of approximately 2000 megalitres per day.

Inflow monitoring data indicates the volume of water requiring release through the dam’s gates will remain steady over the next 24 hours.

SunWater will continue to monitor dam inflows and manage water releases in line with the dam’s normal operating guidelines.

SunWater has contacted all relevant local authorities to advise them of the water release and will continue to liaise with them as required.

SunWater will provide further updates on the water release as more new information becomes available.
