Patrols to ensure we're dam safe
SEQWATER and the Queensland Police Service have launched a joint campaign encouraging the community to play it safe across South East Queensland dams these holidays.
As part of Seqwater’s ongoing “Don’t be DAM Stupid” safety campaign, Seqwater Rangers and Queensland Police have been conducting joint patrols focusing on random breath-testing of boat operators and drivers, as well as monitoring dangerous or anti-social behaviour.
The patrols have been conducted at Borumba, Somerset, Maroon, Moogerah and Atkinson dams.
Seqwater Chief Executive Officer Peter Borrows said the organisation had record numbers over the Easter long weekend with the major recreational dams almost at full capacity.
“The last time our dams were at these historically high levels was more than nine years ago,” Mr Borrows said.
