Mildura Weir to be removed

Mildura Weir to be removed
22 August 2012 MDBA

With rising river flows and further rainfall forecast over the coming week, the Murray–Darling Basin Authority and Goulburn-Murray Water advise that the temporary removal of Mildura Weir is expected to commence on 25 August 2012.

Passage upstream and downstream of Lock 11 will be unavailable between 24-30 August 2012. However, navigation via the river will be possible after this time.

The complete removal of the weir from the river is in preparation for higher flows that are expected over the next few weeks.

The removal will result in a short-term lowering of the water level immediately upstream of the weir of between 0.5-1m and a smaller change farther upstream. During the weir removal only small changes in the downstream river levels are expected.

As the higher flows arrive, the river will begin to rise again.

The weir will be reinstated once the higher flows pass, with the date dependent on future rainfall and inflows.

River pumpers, boat operators and other river users are advised to take these changed water levels into account.
