Water storage levels

We’re Australia’s largest water manager – turning rainfall into clean, renewable energy for Tasmania. Our storage levels follow a secure seasonal pattern - generally peaking in the 40 per cent range during the wettest months each year, and bottoming out in the 20s during the driest part. You can monitor this process in detail.
