Dams (Angus Catchment)

Region: South Australia

Description: The Angas Catchment Dams dataset is a subset of the Hydro Water Bodies dataset and is limited geographically to the Angas River surface water catchment in South Australia. The data set contains polygon data outlining the physical extent of dams and estimated dam capacity (volume range in megalitres) and wall height information (in metres). Dam capacities have been estimated using various methods. These capacities have been converted to volume ranges. The majority of wall heights have been measured on site using a hand sight level. Dam capacity and wall height is based on available information and although best effort and care has been taken in compiling this information, accuracy cannot be guaranteed. The dataset will change over time as further information becomes available. This dataset provides a general indication of dam features within the Angas surface water catchment in South Australia. The dataset can be used for applications particularly in relation to water resource management and emergency planning and response. This dataset has been released for use in GovHack 2018 and will not be available after the competition weekend.
