Brisbane's future & new infrastructure

Drink up! Brisbane water supply topped up.

wivenhoe damTake a good look at this picture – we can’t be sure of the next time you’ll see Wivenhoe Dam at 96.5% of capacity.

Built in 1985 Wivenhoe can hold almost 1.2 million megalitres, a whole lot bigger than our next water tank at Someset which maxes out at 380,000 megalitres.

So when Wivenhoe fills up it’s a great thing for Brisbane residents.

At the start of this month it was only 63% full (yes, 18 days ago!) and that was up from 37% a year ago. It’s been a great year and a sensational start to March!
