Kroombit Dam

Kroombit Dam can hold only 14,600 ML but plays an important part in the Callide Valley Water Supply Scheme.

Built in 1992 across the creek it was named after, its main role is to ensure continuity of supply to irrigators downstream and replenish the region’s aquifers.

The dam was not designed for flood mitigation and does not include a flood mitigation compartment, but when the dam is full, water is released to protect the integrity of the dam structure.

Kroombit Dam is a popular place to stop for a picnic for travellers heading to the spectacular Kroombit Tops National Park.
