Warragamba Dam, located in the foothills of the Blue Mountains, is Sydney’s major water supply source. To protect the dam from failure during a major flood event Sydney Water planned the construction of a major bypass spillway. Prior to this major work beginning Arterra Design and Manidis Roberts Consultants were engaged to evaluate the existing natural and recreational surroundings of the Dam and prepare a Masterplan to guide the reinstatement of  recreational facilities after the spillway construction. The commission included extensive stakeholder consultation and a detailed concept for the core parkland areas known as Haviland Park.
