Murray River Flow Advice

Flow advice: Spring e-water brings changing Murray flows
02 October 2014 - MDBA

Communities along the River Murray between Echuca and Sunraysia need to be aware of changing river levels between October and December 2014, and to adjust their activities accordingly.

The changes will occur as water enters the Murray from the Goulburn River following the release of two environmental water pulses from Lake Eildon.

The first pulse is expected to increase flow rates in the River Murray at Echuca from around 19 October. As the water moves along the river, levels will rise and remain higher for three to four weeks, before receding.

If conditions remain dry, levels at Echuca could rise about 0.5 metres to 87.4 metres (Australian Height Datum) and downstream of Torrumbarry Weir, the river is forecast to reach a peak—about four metres at the gauge—at the end of October.

The second pulse is expected to increase flows at Echuca in late November.

River users between the Echuca district and the upper reaches of Mildura Weir pool need to be aware that levels will fluctuate noticeably during this period and should adjust their activities, pumps and moorings accordingly.

Further updates will be provided as required through the media and the MDBA's river operations weekly report.

The environmental pulses will use Commonwealth Environmental Water Holder and The Living Murray water allocations to benefit fish spawning and vegetation on the Goulburn River and floodplain areas on the River Murray such as the Chowilla icon site.

The planned flows into the Goulburn River will be managed by the Victorian Environmental Water Holder in collaboration with the Goulburn Broken Catchment Management Authority.
