Staying Safe in Queensland Dams

Sunwater manage an array of Queensland’s regional dams. From the southwestern sites such as Leslie and Glenlyon Dams, up north to the beautiful Burdekin and Tinaroo. The Central dams are also hot spots for recreation. Fishos, boaties and tourists alike make a habbit to hit up these freshwater bodies over the weekend and particularly holidays.

It’s no easy feat to manage such a wide profile of waterways, but our mate Jason Smith gives it a go – he looks after the Central region’s dams.

“Central Queensland is a very lovely region to work and play in…and Fairbairn Dam.. being one of the jewels in the crown of our assets.”

“I also look after other dams in the region, in the Pioneer Valley. So Eungella Dam, Kinchant Dam and Teemburra dam. Callide dam down at Biloela…obviously pipelines and channel systems as well”

Jason wants people to enjoy their time at all the lakes and dams…but encourages everyone to consider their safety as well.

“I’d like to ensure when people come to our storages or beautiful recreation areas…with their families just take the time to understand that water storages, dams, can be dangerous places there are submerged hazards.

“Above all, have fun and stay safe.”
