Water Storage Levels
We aim to update the water storage data once a week. This timing may fluctuate because, before publishing, our distribution engineers need to verify that the information from both our dams and the Bureau of Meteorology is accurate. Please contact us if you are experiencing any issues or have feedback.
GL=Gigalitres. The Murrumbidgee to Googong transfer supplements Googong dam levels.
Introducing the enlarged Cotter Dam into our total dam storage capacity means that our total volume has increased from 207GL to 278GL. Previous total storage capacity was around 65% of our new maximum level. For consistency our calculation method is now aligned to that used by the Bureau of Meteorology which counts the volume above the minimum intake level. The enlarged Cotter Dam gives us 76.2GL of usable volume, however in extreme situations it is possible to access the remaining 3.2GL of storage when necessary. Icon Water's other dams have revised total capacities of:
Bendora 11.4GL and
* Previous capacity refers to total combined storage levels before the completion of the new Cotter Dam. The new Dam was built downstream of the old and increased the total water storage capacity by approximately 35%.
