Ipswich rainfall and Wivenhoe Dam update


The current BOM forecast for SE QLD over the next week is for light showers, although there is a chance of storms on Wednesday and Thursday next week. 

The catchments remain wet and are likely to generate additional runoff in the event of rain.

Wivenhoe Dam

At 09:00 on Sunday 2 January 2011, Wivenhoe Dam gates are fully closed and fish recovery has commenced. 

Upon completion of this operation, a regulator will be fully opened to manage continuing low in flows to the dam.

It is expected that the flow in the mid Brisbane River will fall  below Colleges Crossing by Monday morning, which will then allow required repairs to commence.
