*Full Supply Capacity does not include the flood mitigation storage capacity of Wivenhoe and Somerset dams.

The Grid Twelve is made up of the 12 South East Queensland 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.
