The Clarendon Dam is an offstream storage completed in 1992.

It is an un-gated dam, meaning that when it reaches 100 per cent capacity, water flows over the spillway and safely out of the dam. If you would like to be notified when Clarendon Dam begins to spill, please sign up to our free dam release notification service.


Paddlers and anglers can discover the serenity of Lake Clarendon, with an established launch point for paddlecraft access.
