Precious water lost as Paradise Dam Spills

15th November 2021

“It is a sad day to see precious water flowing over the Paradise Dam spillway as the Dam now sits at 107%,” Mrs Frecklington said.

“This is the water that we have been waiting for for so long, and now much of it is lost as it flows out to sea.

“What should have been water security for future dry times is gone.

“The debacle that is Paradise Dam just keeps getting worse.

“Once again, I call on the Labor Government to release the long-awaited detailed business case into the future of Paradise Dam.

“The people of Bundaberg and the Burnett have waited long enough."
