The 60 per cent drought response trigger is likely to stay in place for a while longer, with the region’s main water supply “still less than half full”. Southeast dam levels fall to decade.
Dam levels in south east Queensland. Minister for Main Roads, Road Safety and Ports and Minister for Energy and Water Supply The Honourable Mark Bailey Friday, May 01, 2015 Dam levels in south east Queensland. Minister for Water Supply Mark Bailey has been assured by Seqwater that South East Queensland’s dam levels are being closely monitored as rain falls across the region. Mr Bailey said.
Queensland's combined has fallen to 60 per cent in the south-east of the state for the first time in 11 years, according to Seqwater. External relations manager Mike Foster said it was at the lowest level since the and the region's largest dam, Wivenhoe Dam north of Brisbane, has fallen below 50 per cent.The SEQ Water Grid connects many major storages in South East Queensland via a network of water treatment plants and two-way pipes that move water between sources across the region. From the eleventh of June 2010, twelve key water storages, operated by SeqWater, are used to calculate Brisbane's capacity.The Dam is a drawcard for anglers, campers, bird-watchers and water-sports enthusiasts. The dam was purpose-built in 1983 to provide a water supply to the Tarong Power Station. In recent years, under the careful direction of the former Wondai Shire Council and now the South Burnett Regional Council, it has been developed into a major regional.

Water quality. Avocados are sensitive to poor-quality irrigation water. They require water that has a low conductivity value (low in soluble salts) and a low chloride content. Analyse new sources of irrigation water before use, and test existing sources regularly if a change in quality is possible. Water salinity should not exceed 0.6.

The deeper water around the dam is holding big Bass and Yellow belly suspended in the Thermocline (comfortable water) and these fish are very willing to eat most offerings presented to them, given time. The trick is to locate these suspended fish before casting. It really pays to have good electronics on your boat as sounders are the best way to locate concentrations of fish. The fish in the.
