Scrivener Dam - Molonglo River - Canberra

Water released from Lake Burley Griffin at Scrivener Dam - after a number of weeks of rainfall in the mountain catchments to the East. Work on corroded bolts in the gates was completed earlier in the year.

A number of dam works in the region were undertaken based on assumptions about flood frequency and seasonality that seem to have been exceeded.
