Log Boom Lift at the Cotter Dam!

johnboy 7 February 2013 5

Heavy engineering fans rejoice, we have a Log Boom Lift, with a helicopter no less, from the Cotter Dam Expansion site:

An update from the continuing Cotter Dam enlargement works. See the log boom being choppered in and hear from the team.

[Documentary maker Richard Snashall works with ACTEW Water to help us capture and document the Enlarged Cotter Dam and other water security projects for our Heritage Archive.]

If Actew are going to waste our money on ‘feel good’ films about themselves then Id hope they’d at least get someone who can hold a camera properly – what is that shot at 3.24 all about? Spending OUR money on this is no worse then throwing money at the Raiders, Brumbies and electric car schemes though. Is there anyone at ACTEW accountable for all this wastage?

    the documentary project will be a valuable historical record in years to come.

Where did all the water go? At one point last year the old dam was submerged but now it appears to be visible again. I guess they let it out (or pumped it out) to finish the construction of the new dam?

There’s a couple of pipes running under the new dam. They’ve obviously been releasing water.
