THE ribbon was cut on the $18 million Suma Park Dam upgrade on Friday, which was hailed as a boost to the Orange’s long-term water security.

Orange mayor John Davis and duty MLC for Orange Sarah Mitchell opened the project before those in attendance took a tour of the dam wall. 

Cr Davis said the spilling dam was a far cry from the 23 per cent level in 2010.
