Water Release Notifications

Callide Creek Water Release Notifications is a messaging service offered by council. This service is intended for people who reside on, or own property adjacent to the Callide Creek from Biloela to Goovigen, outside of the existing notification area covered by the Dam operator.

The service can provide free SMS and e-mail alerts to your mobile phone about releases from Callide Dam, during a disaster event, when and as Council is advised by the dam operator.

In addition to this messaging service, residents are encouraged to listen to radio and television, utilise Council's online media and social media pages Banana Shire Council Central News and Banana Shire Disaster Management Information, and monitor the Bureau of Meteorology website for up to date information.
