IIRC Wivenhoe full or 100% means water to the spillway, ie if the gates were open water flows out. The 190% meant as close to the top of the dam wall they dared to go without chancing the integrity of the wall itself. I gather this changes depending on the construction of the wall.

The amount of water in Wivenhoe nearly doubled in a very short period, in was flowing in faster than it could be let out the gates. I remember hearing the level at the dam wall was rising a metre an hour (or something crazy) at some point.
