From Model to Reality


The Shannon Creek Dam is a 30,000 megalitre off-storage facility that is gravity fed from the Nymbodia River. It was built in the first decade of the 21st century and links the Clarence Valley and Coffs Harbour water supply systems.



Of course it was a controversial project but it has provided a secure water supply for both districts when the next drought comes.

  1. I wonder why controversial Mark, it just seems like the perfect solution to a fairly likely problem! Some people just feel the need to object to everything and anything I think.

  2. I also wonder why it's a controversial project. Does it drown many villages that makes lots of people must leave the place? The reality looks beautiful!

    1. No villages went under but some bush. Anything to do with the environment is controversial in Australia. Thanks for visiting Lina.
