Gated dams

The Seqwater Flood Operations Centre is on alert to monitor rainfall associated with Cyclone Oma.

Based on expected forecast over the next 5 days, it is unlikely that Seqwater will release flood water from Wivenhoe and North Pine Dams. Seqwater may carry out operational releases from Somerset Dam into Wivenhoe Dam to balance the storages.
