    media release

    Seqwater is confident its management of Wivenhoe and Somerset dams during the January 2011 flood will be vindicated by the NSW Supreme Court.

    We have never wavered from our belief that our flood engineers did an extraordinary job in the most difficult and demanding circumstances. This position has not changed.

    The January 2011 event was one of the most damaging and extreme natural flood disasters ever experienced in our region. Wivenhoe Dam received inflows much greater than the 1974 flood.

    As of Saturday 2 December 2017, paddlers and club skiers have been given access to the lake every day of the week.

    There will be separate zones on the lake: an area for skiing and an area for paddling. Club rowing will also continue on the designated rowing course. 

    For your safety, and the safety of others, do not paddle or ski outside the designated zone for that activity. Paddlers and skiers must give way to rowers at all times. Skiers must also give way to paddlers.
