Update 1 – Monday December 21 2021, 2:20pm

Recreation users are advised that as of today, Monday 21 December, a six-knot speed limit is now in place for some areas of Tinaroo Falls Dam. It is important all users adhere to speed limits for safety reasons.

Boaties will still be able to access up to 300 hectares of the dam that remains exempt from the speed limit until the storage level reaches 36.8 per cent. Based on historical data, if the dam receives minimum inflows it is forecast to reach this level in June 2021.

Signage is in place at boat ramps with additional information about the restriction zones. Sunwater will keep the community updated of any changes via Facebook, Twitter, the Sunwater App and the Sunwater website.
