Warragamba Dam spill update

8 JUNE 2024

WaterNSW advises the community that the spill from Warragamba dam is starting to recede from yesterday’s peak but downstream communities should continue to follow all flood advice and warnings from the Bureau of Meteorology and SES.

At 7am today Warragamba Dam was spilling at about 200 gigalitres per day (GL/day) and decreasing, down from yesterday’s peak of about 240 GL/day.

Water continues to flow into the dam from streams in the catchment but this is slowing.

Other Sydney dams continuing to spill as at 7am today are Woronora, Nepean. Cataract, Cordeaux, Avon and Tallowa, and the Blue Mountains storages, except Upper Cascades.

WaterNSW continues to work with the Bureau of Meteorology and SES to monitor the weather event.

Follow the Bureau of Meteorology for flood advice and warnings (bom.gov.au) and the NSW State Emergency Service as the lead agency for emergency response (ses.nsw.gov.au).
