Seqwater has started upgrade work on the Wappa Dam wall embankment, as a part of our Dam Improvement Program. 

Contractors will work on the embankment wall (via Nichols Road) from Monday 19 September 2016. Work will take around four months to complete, subject to weather conditions. 

The approved work hours are from 7.00am to 5.30pm Monday to Friday. 

Neighbours will notice increased traffic movements along with noise and dust along Nichols Road during.  

Upgrade work will take place while the dam is operational and will not involve any lowering.
