Timothy and Ben Hone went out to the dam on Sunday 4th March 2012, and noticed that the water is just 1.5 meters from the flagpole - 92.9% full!!!
If the predicted further falls of up to 200mm eventuate, it won’t be long until the dam reaches 100% capacity - Whoo hoo!!!
NOTE! By Monday, the water level was up to 101%!!!
This is the most water we've had since 2001!!!!
