Dam emergency notification lists open to Queensland residents

10 Sep 2012

SunWater is providing residents living in the immediate vicinity of its dams to 'opt in' to be notified in the event of emergency situations and water releases.

Queensland residents living up to 10km downstream of SunWater dams are encouraged to register to be included on SunWater's Emergency Action Plan Notification List; however, residents who have registered previously do not need to register again.

This notification system has been designed to ensure that Queenslanders living downstream of SunWater’s dams have as much notice as possible to prepare should emergency situations arise.

Residents can select to be notified of alerts via their preferred method of communication including email, telephone or SMS.

Registrations can be lodged on the SunWater website at www.sunwater.com.au or by calling the SunWater Customer Support Team on 13 15 89 before 19 October 2012.

SunWater dams include Tinaroo Falls Dam (Atherton), Burdekin Falls Dam (Charters Towers), Julius Dam (Mt Isa), Peter Faust Dam (Proserpine), Eungella, Teemburra, Kinchant dams (Mackay), Fairbairn Dam (Emerald), Callide and Kroombit dams (Biloela), Cania Dam (Monto), Paradise, Fred Haigh, Wuruma, Boondooma, Bjelke Petersen dams (Bundaberg/Burnett), Beardmore Dam (St George) Coolmunda Dam (Inglewood) and Leslie Dam (Warwick).
