Warragamba Dam Full
Thanks to the recent wet weather Sydney’s main water supply, Warragamba Dam, is now at 97.7 per cent, more than double its level only 6 months ago. The Dam is at its highest level since 2016.
It is likely that the Dam will reach capacity and spill over. Water NSW will make controlled releases to avoid flooding in the near flood-prone areas. The NSW State Emergency Service is paying close attention to the risk of flooding.
With more heavy rain predicted for Sydney over the course of this week, the dam could spill on the weekend. If you are visiting areas close to the Dam, please be vigilant.
Call the NSW State Emergency Service on 132 500 if you are caught in a flood or have any emergency information to report regarding storms or floods.
