The 30,000 megalitre Shannon Creek Dam is located west of Coutts Crossing and 18 kilometres south of Grafton on the NSW north coast.
It is an off-river storage reservoir that supplies water to the Clarence valley and Coffs Harbour areas. The dam sources water from the Nymboida river near Nymboida. It’s designed to be used during dry periods to provide water supply security, and reduce the impact of water extraction from the Orara and Nymboida Rivers during low flows.
