Watching water levels in Wyangala

WaterNSW is closely monitoring weather forecasts and catchment conditions as it prepares for Wyangala Dam to possibly reach 100 per cent of capacity later this year.

While the Bureau of Meteorology’s rainfall forecast from now until September is predicting below average falls over the southern half of mainland Australia, storages across central and southern NSW are comparatively high for this time of year.

Wyangala Dam is currently at eighty-eight percent of capacity.
