With the water level at Lake Barambah (Bjelke Petersen Dam) currently 8.17%, Sunwater reminds all recreational users and visitors to the storage to be aware of exposed and submerged hazards and exercise caution at all times.
We are working with South Burnett Regional Council and Maritime Safety Queensland (MSQ) to regularly assess the risks associated with recreational use of the storage.
Please keep in mind that there may be hazards under the water’s surface that are not easily visible, so proceed with caution and follow signage at the storage.
It is the responsibility of each recreational user and visitor to be aware of the risks at the storage and when operating their vessel on the lake.
Please note that MSQ has also issued a Notice to Mariners regarding hazards at Lake Barambah.
Further hazard alerts relating to the dam will be provided via the ‘Recreation & safety alerts’ page on Sunwater website, as required.
