dam levels

Good news water watchers! ACTEW’s Dam Level page shows all three dams on the cotter river now 100% full while Googong at 65% full gives the ACT’s water storage at 79.4% of capacity and climbing!

Now will we maintain water restrictions if the system hits capacity?

UPDATE: Spring Cleaning exemptions have been announced.

Spring Cleaning Exemption – What is allowed?

A general exemption exists during the period 2 to 17 October 2010 to allow potable water to be used to clean windows, buildings and paved areas where such cleaning would not otherwise be permissible under Stage 2 Water Restrictions.

Paved areas, windows and buildings may be washed at any time during the period 2 to 17 October 2010 by using a bucket and mop/brush or a high-pressure low volume cleaner.

Note :
– Where washing is necessary as a result of accident, fire, health hazard or other emergency, such cleaning may be undertaken at any time using the most appropriate method.
– All applicable laws must be complied with when discharging substances into the storm water system.

Great photo, but isn’t that just overflow, given Corin, Bendora and Cotter are all 100% full? Total capacity should get toward 90% in the next few days as Googong continues to fill.

And just for those people who still think it wouldn’t rain enough to fill the tennant dam (the one they were supposed to build but didn’t). Massive water releases in the last few days from our dams: http://www.flickr.com/photos/jekabsons/5086161880/in/photostream/
