Wivenhoe Dam was built on the Brisbane River, approximately 80 kilometres from Brisbane. It was designed by the Water Resources Commission and built in 1984. Its primary function is to provide a safe and reliable water supply for the region.
The dam has a total storage capacity of 2.6 million megalitres. At full supply level it will hold 1.15 million megalitres, or about 2000 times the daily water consumption of Brisbane.
