The Grid Twelve is made up of the 12 dams which contribute to the water supply system. These dams are Wivenhoe, Somerset, North Pine, Hinze, Baroon Pocket, Leslie Harrison, Ewen Maddock, Cooloolabin, Lake Kurwongbah, Lake Macdonald, Little Nerang and Wappa.

The Grid Twelve % Full is calculated by dividing the combined current capacity of the dams in the group by the combined full supply capacity.

*Full supply capacity does not include the flood mitigation storage capacity of Wivenhoe and Somerset Dams.

Please note:

  • the capacity of the Hinze Dam increased from 161,073 ML to 310,730 ML on Friday 15 July 2011
  • the capacity of Leslie Harrison Dam temporarily decreased from 24,868 ML to 13,206 ML on Friday 1 August 2014
  • the capacity of Nindooinbah Dam temporarily decreased from 322 ML to 208 ML on Saturday 1 March 2014.

The following table provides the latest available information about the region's dams. Information about the major dams is updated Monday to Friday around 9am, the smaller dams at least weekly. Dam levels are not updated on weekends.

For information about flood levels, contact your local Council. For information about road impacts, contact Transport and Main Roads. For information about river levels, please see the Bureau of Meteorology website.

Historical Dam Storage Data

This graphs shows the full supply level of Seqwater dams including drinking water supply and flood water storage. To operate this graph choose up to 4 dams from the right, and then slide the date bars left and right to select dates of interest.

The combined Grid Twelve dam data is currently unavailable. We are in the process of uploading historical data for each of the dams and until this process is complete the Grid Twelve total will not be correct. The complete data set will be available after 1 April 2014. We apologise for any inconvenience.
