I heard on abc news (on tv) that perths dam levels (for this time of the year) are at their highest in 10 years....

so all this rain from tomorrow onwards should also help the inflows. :)

Percentage of Total Capacity: 37.1 %

Yes July was above by 35mm, August below by 6mm and Sept above by 26mm. I'm sure 2006 is a year many WA folk would rather forget immediately.
