Lake Argyle – Easter 2017

The second largest man made lake in Australia. At normal full supply level the area of the lake formed by the Ord Dam is 980 square kilometres and impounds 10.7 million mega litres (8.6 million acre feet) of water, over 18 times the volume of water contained in Sydney Harbour! If the lake ever does flood to its maximum capacity then the volume will more than triple – Sydney Harbour could be filled more than 70 times.
