Water Corporation has closed recreational areas at three dams to reduce the bushfire risk while emergency services resources are concentrated on the bushfires in the South West.

This includes picnic grounds and trails. Access to some catchment areas may also be restricted.

Water Corporation is taking the precaution of closing access to recreational and picnic areas including:

  • South Dandalup Dam
  • North Dandalup Dam
  • Stirling Dam (Harvey)

Water Corporation is asking people to stay away from these sites until further notice.

There are also closures at dams that are not managed by Water Corporation, please check the Department of Fire and Emergency Services (DFES) website before planning a trip to any dam sites or reserves during while the bushfires are ongoing.

Water Corporation would like to thank people for their cooperation and their patience while these areas remain closed.
