Enlarged Cotter Dam Site Visit

Yesterday, Thursday January 27th, the Rivers RFS Brigade visited the Enlarged Cotter Dam to view various access points and hazards in case of an incident they will be required to attend.

Don't forget you can click on the image to see the original size.

The top of the cutting is going to be where the top of the new dam is!

The excavations for the dam wall

The view from the look out spot where the new dam wall will come to & looking down on the old dam wall.  It makes you realise how big this dam will be!!
