Proposal Stage of Development: Business case update underway
Date of Publication: July 2016
Fairbairn Dam is approximately 17 kilometres southwest of Emerald and 270 kilometres west of Rockhampton in Central Queensland. Routine dam inspections of Fairbairn Dam have detected that the condition of the original spillway drainage system and ground anchors have deteriorated and are no longer functioning efficiently.
SunWater is proposing to undertake improvement works to the spillway to ensure the dam can continue to function safely and in line with current best practice standards.
