Final steps in Mildura Weir removal delayed until after Easter

The Murray-Darling Basin Authority and Goulburn-Murray Water advised today that the final steps in removing the Mildura Weir have been delayed until 10 April 2012.
The decision has been made based on the latest River Murray flows and community consultation.
This means that the Mildura river level will now be around 0.5 m higher, and less than 1 m below the normal pool level over the Easter Period, which will improve water access on local boat ramps.
From 4 April 2012, navigation along the river will be possible for boats using the normal lock process.
The latest peak forecasts for the River Murray indicate a lower-than-expected peak flow that will arrive later than previously estimated.
This allows sufficient time to complete the final stages of removing the weir at a safe river level starting on 10 April 2012.
The weir pool has already been partially lowered and the level has dropped by 95cm.
A final decision on whether to fully remove the structure will take place over Easter.
