GEORGE NEWS - The latest water update, supplied by George Municipality:
- Dam level: 100%
- Estimated dam level at new dam wall height: 81,97% (down from 82,47%)
- Rainfall since 1 April 2021: 16,5mm
- Demand/usage: 29,699 megalitres
(Please note the 100% dam level indication is based on the spillway and dam wall height before it was raised, the latter is the new unofficial estimation based on preliminary calculations ahead of re-callibration of the dam.)
Re-calibration has commenced and is dependent on several factors. Adjusted official readings will be implemented and reported once new capacity has been confirmed, the time period of this is unknown.
Section 2B water restrictions for George have been lifted by Council on 25 March 2021, but implemented for Uniondale.
