Radial gate to be opened for operational releases at Wivenhoe Dam

Posted 16 June 2015   

Seqwater advises that a radial gate will be used to maintain normal water releases from Wivenhoe Dam beginning Wednesday 17 June for approximately two weeks.

Seqwater is undertaking maintenance of the outlet works at Wivenhoe Dam from tomorrow.  To facilitate this work, the outlet works and hydro-station will be taken off-line during business hours, and one radial gate will be opened to continue operational releases during daylight hours.

The releases are required to maintain supply, during the day, to downstream customers and meet environmental flow requirements. The hydro will be operated overnight to meet the water supply needs of the Mount Crosby Water Treatment Plants.

The change in mechanism is not expected to impact local communities and residents downstream of Wivenhoe Dam, as daily release volumes should not change from what is currently being released.

Might let a few more fish go downstream though.
