Eden Bann Weir

Overview

Eden Bann Weir is located on the Fitzroy River approximately 62 km north west of Rockhampton. The weir was constructed in 1994, and currently has a water storage capacity of over 35,000 mega litres at full supply level. Eden Bann Weir is owned and operated by SunWater as part of the Lower Fitzroy Water Supply Scheme supplying water to the Stanwell Power Station.

Upgrades to the existing Eden Bann Weir and associated infrastructure works will be undertaken in a staged approach to give Gladstone Area Water Board and SunWater the flexibility to respond to Project demand triggers and other factors, such as new consumers, drought conditions, security of supply and availability of funding. Please be aware that the staging and construction works on Eden Bann Weir may be undertaken independently of staging and construction of Rookwood Weir.

Eden Bann Weir Stage 1 is the existing weir:

  • Full supply level (FSL) of 14.5 m AHD
  • 35,980 ML in water storage at FSL
  • 670 hectare impoundment area at FSL.

Stage 2 of Eden Bann Weir comprises:

  • Raise existing Eden Bann Weir to a FSL of 18.2 m AHD
  • 67,690 ML of storage at FSL
  • 1,170 ha impoundment area at FSL.

Stage 3 of Eden Bann Weir comprises:

  • Construction of two-metre-high flap gates, increasing the FSL to 20.2 m AHD
  • 91,450 ML storage at FSL
  • 1,690 ha impoundment area at FSL.

In addition to the upgrades at Eden Bann Weir, the following infrastructure will be constructed or upgraded:

  • Upgrade of the existing fish lock on the northern bank and construction of a new fish lock on the southern bank, capable of catering to high and low reservoir levels and water flows from zero to 2,700 m3/s
  • Construction of a turtle ramp on the northern bank
  • Establishment of electrical plant (control room) at weir site
  • Construction of new 12 km private access road to service the southern bank of Eden Bann Weir
  • Construction of a crossing at Glenroy Crossing, and removal of existing low level causeway
