Cairn Curran Embankment Closure

GMW is required to manage the safety of the public when they visit the Cairn Curran embankment area, and the ongoing safe operation and maintenance of the storage assets including the embankment, spillway and tower, while also continuing to provide a duty of care to GMW staff while they are at work. To ensure this is achieved, GMW will be implementing a public exclusion zone on the embankment immediately adjacent to the spillway at Cairn Curran Reservoir and a permanent fence installed.

GMW acknowledges that this is a significant change for local residents and visitors and is committed to working with them to develop a suitable outcome that not only meets GMW’s safety and operational requirements but also continues to delivers a functional recreational space for visitors.
