Rain increases dam levels

IT’S not been a great deal, but every drop counts with Central Queensland’s dam levels so low.

A spokesman for Sunwater yesterday said dam levels had been boosted by “reasonable” falls across Central Queensland during the past one-an-a-half days.

About 1000 megalitres had flowed into the Callide Dam, raising the level from 6% to 6.2%.

About 1500 megalitres at Cania Dam took the level there to 6.7%, while some 800 megalitres at Kroombit Dam brought the level to 5.8%.

“It’s not a great deal, but every bit counts when things are so low,” the Sunwater spokesman said.

He said hopefully the recent rain would fill the catchment creeks and future falls would increase the levels across the region’s dams.
