Lake Llewellyn Dam spillway upgrade


The Parks and Wildlife Service are calling for tenders for the upgrade of the spillway of the Lake Llewellyn Dam. The dam is located within Rocky Cape National Park, near the township of Sisters Beach.

Parks and Wildlife Service Northwest Region manager, Alex Simpson, said the spillway is being upgraded following engineering advice.

"This upgrade will allow the dam to cope with a one in 1000 year flood event," Mr Simpson said.

The upgrade will involve a temporary lowering of the lake level which will mean that boating will be unavailable during construction. Work on the spillway is expected to begin later in the year.

For further information about the project, contact the Parks and Wildlife Service Smithton office on 6452 4997.
