River Murray flows to vary this winter

River Murray flows to vary this winter
17 June 2015 - MDBA

Communities along the River Murray in New South Wales and Victoria are advised to expect varying flows in the river during winter and consider adjusting their activities, pumps and moorings accordingly.

Starting in mid-June, river users in the Echuca district and downstream need to be aware that levels will rise noticeably, as an environmental pulse enters the River Murray from the Goulburn River.

By late June, the flow downstream of Torrumbarry Weir might exceed 10,000 megalitres per day for a short period (gauge height of 3.1 metres) before receding gradually, assuming conditions remain dry.

River levels downstream of Hume Dam are also likely to fluctuate as environmental water starts to be released from Hume Reservoir in late June. The volume of water released will remain well below normal summer rates but is likely to rise and fall to mimic natural flows expected at this time of year.

The environmental flows will use water allocations held by the Commonwealth Environmental Water Holder to benefit native fish and vegetation on the Murray and Goulburn Rivers. A small volume of water from the Victorian Environmental Water Holder will also contribute to outcomes in the Goulburn River and Gunbower Creek.

The water may also be used to support environmental watering actions at a range of sites including the Edward-Wakool River system, Barmah-Millewa Forest, Gunbower Forest, Hattah Lakes and the Coorong and Lower Lakes.
