SunWater installs signage and fencing to warn people of the dangers of trespassing, however the community must remain vigilant and aware of the serious risks in and around waterways.

We encourage people to enjoy our facilities by keeping a safe distance of at least 200m from dam and weir walls, always read the signs and look out for submerged hazards and risks.

Anyone who witnesses life-threatening behaviour at SunWater weirs, dams or channels is urged to report it to the local Police by calling 000. For all non-urgent reporting, call Police link 13 14 44.
