Geotechnical investigations commence at Burdekin Falls Dam

Burdekin Falls Dam Raising

Sunwater is undertaking geotechnical works at Burdekin Falls Dam to investigate the soil and rock properties of the land surrounding the dam. The works are part of the Detailed Business Case for the Burdekin Falls Dam Raising and Dam Improvement Projects and are critical to inform the design of future construction works. The investigation will also help to make recommendations regarding the most effective type of machinery and tools required during construction.

From the week commencing 3 February until mid-April 2020 (weather permitting), contractors will be undertaking works and occupying part of the campsite. Campers and caravaners heading to the dam can contact the Sunwater office on (07) 4770 3177 to check campsite availability. It is anticipated the contractors will vacate the campsite before the Easter period. For more information on the campsite visit
