Council closes dams to all recreational activities
1 April 2020
Following advice from the Queensland and Federal Governments, Southern Downs Regional Council has closed Connolly and Storm King Dams to all water and land-based recreational activities, effective from Tuesday 31 March 2020.
To slow the spread of COVID-19 and restrict physical contact, activities such as boating, fishing, swimming, kayaking, skiing, bike riding and walking are prohibited until further notice and Council officers will be patrolling the dams to ensure compliance.
This follows the closure of all state-owned government dams and Seqwater and Sunwater dams, lakes and weirs.
All Council camping grounds were closed on Thursday 26 March 2020. All closures will remain in place until further notice.
Council will continue to be guided by advice from the Queensland and Federal Governments with decisions regarding the operations of its facilities to keep the community safe.
Council appreciates the community’s patience and cooperation during these times of change.
