Coolmunda Dam deceased fish alert

Issued 6 June 2019

Due to cold weather conditions and low storage levels at Coolmunda Dam (near Inglewood) sadly a large number of fish have died.

Unfortunately this can occur in water bodies, when warmer water from the bottom rises to the top, (a process known as thermal stratification) reducing the amount of available oxygen.

A number of fish species have been affected.

Sunwater has notified environment and fisheries authorities.
