Emergency Action Plans for Southern Downs Dams

Council owns and operates two dams, Connolly Dam and Storm King Dam, that are classed are ‘referable’ under the Section 352S of the Water Supply (Safety and Reliability) Act 2008

A 'referable dam' is a dam that would put two or more people at risk in the event of a dam failure.  Referable dams are required to have an approved emergency action plan (EAP) in place to minimise the consequences of dam failure and the impact on those at risk as much as practicable. 

The approved EAP for Storm King Dam and Connolly Dam can be viewed at the website of Department of Regional Development, Manufacturing and Water.
