In May of 2010, Lake Meadowbank in Tasmania was 'drawn down' six meters over thirty six hours, remaining so for two days while the spillway gates of the dam wall were inspected and tested as part of Hydro Tasmania's dam safety programme. The flooded waterway hadn't been lowered this much for over forty years.

This project has been assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council for the Arts, its arts funding and advisory body.
