Tasmania

The are 103 dams in Tasmania.[2] Of these, 100 facilities are considered major dams according to the Australian National Committee on Large Dams.[1]

Dams and reservoirs

The largest reservoir in Tasmania is the 12,359-gigalitre (2,719×10^9 imp gal; 3,265×10^9 US gal) Lake Gordon in the South West region of the state, formed by the Gordon Dam. As of 2015, 44 per cent of all the dams in Tasmania were constructed for the purpose of generating hydro-electricity.[1]
