Flow advice: Mitta flows resume as dry conditions continue

Flow advice: Mitta flows resume as dry conditions continue
20 March 2015 - MDBA

Landholders and river users on the Mitta Mitta are advised that releases into the river from Dartmouth Dam will be increased during autumn to transfer water to Hume Dam.

Dry conditions have persisted into autumn which means more water needs to be available from Hume Dam to meet downstream demands.

Starting on 23 March, releases from Dartmouth into the Mitta Mitta River will increase until flows reach 3500 megalitres per day (ML/day) on 24 March, which is 1.99 metres local gauge height at Colemans gauge.

Releases will remain at 3500 ML/day until Tuesday 7 April. For the rest of autumn, the flow rate will vary between minimum flows and 6000 ML/day, depending on the weather along the river system.

Landholders and river users on the Mitta Mitta are encouraged to regularly check the flow forecasts that are updated on the MDBA website each Wednesday.

The current storage volume in Dartmouth Reservoir is 3029GL (79% capacity) while Hume Reservoir’s storage is 867GL (29% capacity).

The Bureau of Meteorology (BoM) is now advising that an El Niño is likely in 2015.  An El Niño in 2015 does not automatically mean dry conditions but increases the likelihood of lower winter-spring rainfall in south east Australia.
