Dam releases continue to reduce

Date published: 14 February 2019

The volume of water being released from Ross River Dam continues to decline with full closure of the dam spillway gates expected soon.

Outflows have reduced to approximately 50 cubic metres per second and the spillway gates will close when the dam level reaches 100 per cent.

The gates have been open – at different levels – since Wednesday 30 January.

All recovery information is available through the Emergency Management Dashboard at disaster.townsville.qld.gov.au.
