The Reality of Rain After a Hot and Dry Summer

So over the past week we've had some downpours and some places in South East Queensland have already received their average monthly rainfall for the entire month!

So why didn't our dam levels rise very much? (They went up 0.8%. At current consumption this is about two weeks' of water supply).

Check out our below, but in short, when the ground dries out during hot and dry weather, it takes more rain to generate run-off into our dams.

Any questions?
