Gordonbrook Dam is at 80.57 per cent and Boobir Dam is sitting at 27 per cent.
WOOROOLIN carpark sealing works have been completed. Final touches will be added over the coming weeks, including replacing the old timber table settings under the trees, including new slabs and bin pads.
Zonal bollards will be installed as per the master plan to better control the open space and clearly define the free camp area.
