The Full Supply Level is considered 38.60 (100% capacity). As the water lever rises above this point the gates are progressively opened to a predefined sequence (there are three gates) and the level of opening is dependent on the measured rate of inflow.

So still a way to go to 100% (FSL) at 38.60m. Would be good if the BOM page was updated to account for this as it is definitely misleading.

Bring it on and lets hope this upper low stays around for a little longer. Next week looking good too!
