The author has been involved in the design of a number of dams and spillways and specifically the design of several ACT lakes and ponds working either for the development authorities or as a consultant to them. This paper, a memoire, describes seven innovative spillways utilised in the ACT, five of which he was directly involved with. The use of dual spillways has been a common feature of the designs and this has been a very economic approach. As well as some use of fuseplug spillways, a labyrinth spillway and the safety of embankment overtopping, this paper may provide some useful ideas for new developments.
