Approximately 64km south west of Beaudesert
Lake Surface Area:
Full Supply Capacity:
42,186 ML (95.2% full) at 12/12/2013 08:04AM
Full Supply Waterline:
Concreted sharp crested weir
Type of Construction:
Rock and earthfill dam with large weighting zones
Length of Dam Wall:
This central earth core and rockfill structure, situated on Burnett Creek approximately 25km above its confluence with the Logan River, permitted expansion of irrigation along Burnett Creek and the Logan River for about 130km downstream of the dam. This more than doubled the existing area being irrigated to construction of the dam. Recreation facilities also make the area around the dam a popular tourist attraction.
Maroon Dam – Safety Upgrade (Stage 1)
Seqwater plans to upgrade Maroon Dam during 2013 to 2014 to meet requirements identified from a Safety Review conducted in 2010. The upgrade will comply with Queensland Guidelines on Acceptable Flood Capacity (AFC).
Detailed design of the upgrade has been completed. Stage 1 works will involve extending existing grouting nd relief wells on the dam abutments, as well as an extension of the existing weighting berm to improve embankment stability. Stage 2 works will not be required until after 2025.
For further information regarding the project, please contact Seqwater on 1800 737 928 or via email to email@example.com.
