We need steady, regular rain in order to soak our catchments and get the streams flowing into our dams. Slowly declining rainfall means Perth's dams receive much less streamflow than in years past.
In order to provide an accurate historical comparison streamflow from Stirling and Samson Brook Dams are not included in this data as these dams only came online in 2001. Inflow is therefore modelled on Perth dams pre-2001.
Water Corporation acknowledges the Traditional Custodians throughout Western Australia and their continuing connection to the land, water and community. We pay our respects to all members of the Aboriginal communities and their cultures; and to Elders past, present and emerging.
