SE Qld dams edge closer to 60 pc

15 April 2009

Water restrictions across south-east Queensland could soon be eased to the lowest level if the region's three main dams hit 60 percent capcity.

After two weeks of steady rain, the combined level of the Wivenhoe, Somerset and North Pine dams has risen to just under 58 per cent.

Water restrictions were eased 10 days ago when the combined levels of the three dams hit 50 per cent.

The Queensland Premier, Anna Bligh, says once the 60 per cent mark is passed, the rules will be relaxed to 'conservation restrictions'.

"The target there will be to Target 230," Ms Bligh said.

Despite the increased supply Ms Bligh says she will not back away from controversial plans to build a dam on the Mary River near Gympie.

She says it will go ahead once Federal Government approval is granted.

"Traveston Crossing dam is about the long-term water security," she said.

Somerset Dam is 99.7 per cent full
