SEQ WATER GRID

The SEQ Water Grid storage is the combined capacity of South East Queensland's drinking water supply dams. These dams are Wivenhoe, Somerset, North Pine, Hinze, Baroon Pocket, Leslie Harrison, Ewen Maddock, Cooloolabin, Sideling Creek, Lake Macdonald, Little Nerang and Wappa.

The Water Grid storage capacity is calculated by dividing the current volume of water stored in the dams by the combined full supply capacity.

Dam Improvement Program and Reduced Full Supply Level for North Pine Dam, Somerset Dam and Wivenhoe Dam

Seqwater is currently undertaking its Dam Improvement Program.

The program will deliver infrastructure upgrades at a number of Seqwater dams and ensure ongoing safety and security of bulk water supply well into the future.

Whilst the program is underway, Wivenhoe, Somerset and North Pine Dams are operating at a reduced full supply level.

The temporary changes mean Wivenhoe Dam storage will be maintained at 90% full supply level, Somerset Dam 80% fully supply level and North Pine 68% full supply level until upgrades are completed.

The temporary full supply levels mean the SEQ Water Grid at full supply is approximately 88%.
