The Bowraville site has been in full production mode for the last couple of months:
- Embankment construction is progressing with the fill leaping out of the ground and currently sitting at RL22.
- The downstream sandwich filters have been placed along with the rock protection on the downstream toe.
- Water monitoring piezometers have been installed in the lower filters of the dam and the final instruments will be installed this week.
- The concrete spillway was completed in January and the final pours will take place on the bridge piers in coming weeks.
- The steel access bridge is due to be lifted into place in May, thus completing the major structures on the site.

The surrounding site works including roads, fences and site buildings are all progressing on schedule.
