Mildura lock closed for weir works

Mildura lock closed for weir works
14 July 2014 - MDBA

The community and river users around Mildura are reminded that Lock 11 will close  Tuesday, 15 July as a four-week maintenance program begins at the Mildura weir.

MDBA head of River Management David Dreverman said the lock would close to allow materials, including a new trestle, to be moved to Lock Island.

"Based on advice from the local tourism industry, we have scheduled the lock closure to allow houseboats and other river craft time to make their way through the lock after the school holiday period," Mr Dreverman said.

"Next week, as part of the works program, we'll be removing the weir's trestles. This will drop the weir pool level to about 3.0 metres below the full level, depending on river flows.

"These works have been carefully scheduled to start before the irrigation season begins. The weir pool will be raised back to full supply level and the lock reopened by mid-August.

"We appreciate everyone's understanding while we do this upgrade, which is a necessary part of managing the river properly and reliably to support surrounding industries.

"This is part of the major task of installing mechanised gates, which also involves repairing the support structure on the riverbed. The final phase of this infrastructure program is expected to be completed over two to three months next winter," Mr Dreverman said.

The MDBA and Goulburn–Murray Water will issue further advice in the coming weeks.
