Water outflow pipe near the Cotter Pumping Station?

By 29 April 2012 4

outflow

Just upstream of the bridge over the Murrumbidgee near the pumping station, there is occassionally a huge powerful blast of water spraying into the Murrumbidgee.

It is on the wrong side of the river to be coming directly from the new dam site.

Anyone know what the story is ?

Pressure relif overflow from the pumping station.

Right, question answered, no more need for any more posts here. Next please.

This is an outlet from the Bendora main that allows us to keep Bendora Dam from overtopping and reducing pressure on Cotter Dam.
