Lower Darling River Flow advice: Release from Menindee Lakes reducing on 3 January 2013

The Murray-Darling Basin Authority advises that the release from Menindee Lakes to the lower Darling River is planned to reduce to a flow of about 6,000 ML/day (2.6 m) at Weir 32 commencing Thursday, 3 January, 2013. Until that date, the flow will be steady at about the current flow rate of 7,000 ML/day, with levels at Weir 32 varying between 2.65 - 2.75 m.

At Burtundy, the flow is currently about 6,500 ML/day (3.8 m) and slowly falling. The flow is expected to continue receding for the next couple of days then remain steady at about 5,500 - 6,100 ML/day (3.4 - 3.7 m) until about 10 January 2013. Thereafter, flows are expected to recede further to about 5,300 ML/day (3.3 m).

Landholders and river users, including pumpers, should take into account the changing flow rates along the lower Darling River and make necessary adjustments to their activities.

This flow forecast is dependent on weather conditions and operational requirements. Another flow advice will be issued on Friday 11 January 2013, or earlier if there are any significant variations to these planned releases.

Lower Darling River Flow advice: Release from Menindee Lakes reducing on 10 January 2013
02 January 2013 - MDBA

The Murray Darling Basin Authority advises that the release from Menindee Lakes to the lower Darling River is planned to reduce to a flow of about 5,000 ML/day (2.5 m) at Weir 32, commencing Thursday, 10 January, 2013.

Until that date, the flow will steadily reduce from the current flow rate of 7,000 ML/day to around 6,000 ML/day, with levels at Weir 32 falling from around 2.7 m to 2.5 m.

At Burtundy, the flow is currently about 5,500 ML/day (3.4 m) and relatively steady. The flow is expected to begin to recede in about a week's time and by late January, flows are expected to be around 4,000 ML/day (2.8 m).

Landholders and river users, including pumpers, should take into account the changing flow rates along the lower Darling River and make necessary adjustments to their activities.

Forecast flows are also available on the MDBA website (see http://www.mdba.gov.au/water/river_info and click on 'storage volumes & releases' for Menindee storage volume and Weir 32 flows or 'river flows & levels' for Burtundy flows).

This flow forecast is dependent on weather conditions and operational requirements. A further flow advice will be issued if there are any significant variations to these planned releases.

Lower Darling River Flow advice: Release from Menindee Lakes reducing on 21 January 2013
17 January 2013 - MDBA

The Murray Darling Basin Authority advises that release from Menindee Lakes to the lower Darling River will be reduced to about 3,800 ML/day (2.35 m) at Weir 32 by Tuesday, 22 January 2013. Currently the flow at Weir 32 is about 5,000 ML/d (2.5 m).


Flow reductions at the Lake Pamamaroo outlet will commence on Monday, until then, the flow at Weir 32 will be steady at around 5,000 ML/day (2.5m).

The reduction will minimise release from Lakes Wetherell and Pamamaroo while maximising the use of water from Lakes Menindee and Cawndilla. As the water level of Lakes Menindee and Cawndilla falls in coming weeks the release is expected to very slowly recede as the capacity of the Lake Menindee outlet reduces. Flows at Weir 32 are expected to remain above 3,500 ML/day until around mid February.

At Burtundy, the flow is currently about 5,000 ML/day (3.2 m) and relatively steady. The flow is expected to recede and by late January be around 3,500 ML/day (2.3 m). Beyond this flows will continue to slowly recede in line with the falling release from Menindee.

Landholders and river users, including pumpers, should take into account the changing flow rates along the lower Darling River and make necessary adjustments to their activities.
