Tillegra Dam Project Announced

In November 2006, the NSW Government announced that a new dam was to be constructed at Tillegra to meet the water supply needs of the region for at least sixty years.

Hunter Water had been acquiring land in the area for decades to potentially build a dam in the future.

The proposed dam included a hydroelectric plant and involved significant tree planting to offset growth in greenhouse gases.
