Entura completes Suma Park Dam upgrade in NSW

28 September 2016

Specialist power and water consulting firm Entura has recently completed the Suma Park Dam upgrade in New South Wales, Australia, after developing an innovative solution to increase the height of the dam wall by three metres while maintaining regular operations.

Suma Park Dam is a 30.5m-high single-curvature concrete-arch dam near Orange, central New South Wales. Entura was engaged by Orange City Council in 2010 to develop a risk-based concept design to address the dam’s known spillway deficiency, and explore its uncertain seismic stability. Increasing storage at the dam to firm up the yield from its integrated water supply system was also a key objective for the Council.
