Latest update: 2.30pm, Thursday 30 March 2017

Seqwater’s Flood Operations Centre is currently on alert due to heavy rain in the catchments. There are no gate releases currently occurring from Wivenhoe, Somerset and North Pine dams. We do not expect to make releases within the next 18 to 24 hours.

Operational releases from Somerset into Wivenhoe Dam are continuing.

Due to continuing rain in the catchments, there are nine un-gated dams spilling and it is likely more will spill today.

Please avoid potential hazards downstream of these dams such as fast flowing or deep water near waterways and floodplains.
