Dungowan Dam

Dungowan Dam

Replacing the current Dungowan Dam with a new, larger dam will improve water availability and security in the Peel Valley.

Prime Minister Scott Morrison and NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian have announced a jointly funded package of around $1bn for the planning and delivery of three new or augmented dams in NSW. This includes the replacement of the existing Dungowan Dam on the Peel River near Tamworth.

The principle objective of the Dungowan Dam project is to secure the long-term water supply security for the regional city of Tamworth.

Dungowan Dam is a Tamworth Regional Council asset.
