Brisbane Times:

Dams drenched: 240 billion litres added

May 21, 2009

Heavy rain has delivered a massive boost to South-East Queensland dam levels, with two of the region's three major dams now overflowing.

The combined level of Wivenhoe, Somerset and North Pine dams passed 72 per cent this morning, just one day after the region topped the drought-breaking 60 per cent level.

Further rain and strong inflows are expected to push the dam levels even higher in coming days.

Seqwater today revealed the past 48 hours had added more than a year of extra water supply to the system.

The past four days have pushed combined dam levels up by 13.34 per cent, or 240 billion litres.

Wivenhoe Dam reached 55.67 per cent capacity this morning, while the official figures for Somerset Dam and North Pine Dam were 106.37 per cent and 102.25 per cent respectively.

Seqwater spokesman Mike Foster said authorities opened the North Pine gates at 6pm last night to begin slow controlled releases, which would continue until midday tomorrow and then be re-evaluated.

Water started flowing over Somerset's fixed spillway overnight and two cone valves were also in operation, he said.

All Sunshine Coast and Gold Coast dams are now full.

Rainfall figures show 79mm fell over Wivenhoe Dam in the past 24 hours, 57mm fell over Somerset Dam and 75mm fell over North Pine Dam.
