Durras Lake Opens 11 December 2021

The lake was mechanically opened on Saturday 11 December following a month of rains.
In the past day or so, the lake level had risen above the “trigger point” of 1.8m. So to prevent further flooding at South Durras, the morning low tide was selected for the event.
