Townsville City Council is upgrading the Paluma Dam Spillway in Paluma. The project was awarded to CivilPlus Constructions who started work on 08/09/2021.
The project objective is to construct a reinforced concrete spillway with anchors into the rock foundation.
The existing dam spillway is a natural rock formation of granite. The granite is weathered and starting to decompose, which could adversely affect supporting structures like the spillway bridge and dam ogee weir. Townsville City Council is upgrading the spillway to prevent its deterioration.
