Wivenhoe - Toowoomba pipeline pumping beyond expectations ...

The Chronicle:

Downpour flows into dams

16 February 2010

Almost five days supply flowed into Toowoomba’s dams thanks to last night’s heavy downpour.

Deputy Mayor and water services portfolio leader Paul Antonio said about 120 megalitres was delivered to Toowoomba’s dams overnight.

The wet weather comes on the back of news that the Wivenhoe pipeline is performing better than its designers anticipated.

Since it was opened, up to 30 megalitres has been delivered to Cressbrook Dam every day, enough to meet demand and offset evaporation.

Acting water services director Alan Kleinschmidt said there had been a noticeable increase in levels at Cressbrook, which at 9am this morning was at nine per cent capacity.
