Henderson Dam Upgrade

Henderson Dam has a maximum capacity of 40 mega litres [ML] (the equivalent of approx. 20 Olympic swimming pools)

Cannes Hill storages (adjacent the water treatment plant) has a capacity of 24 ML

Based on a typical dry summer period, there is insufficient to supply Whitemark without implementing water restrictions.

To provide Whitemark residents with improved drinking water security this project will increase the amount of bulk water storage available by increasing the height of Henderson Dam which will increase its storage volume from 40 ML to 85 ML.

Construction will begin early in 2020.
