Issued on January 17th, 2019
With the water level at Lake Barambah (Bjelke Petersen Dam) currently 13.9%, 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 to regularly assess the risks associated with recreational use of the storage as the water level decreases.
Please keep in mind that there may be hazards under the water’s surface that are not easily visible, so proceed with caution and always 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 a vessel on the lake.
We will continue to work with stakeholders to monitor water levels and will provide further updates as required.
