About this update
Water for the environment will be delivered in November and December in conjunction with a block release. Deliveries are expected to commence from Gunidgera Weir in November and continue into December 2018. This environmental flow will support native fish and river health by refreshing and re-connecting refuge pools, and improving water quality. A small ‘pulse’ at the beginning of the event aims to assist flushing pools. The flows downstream of Gunidgera Weir will rise over a few days to reach around 450 ML/day. The flow will then taper back to a baseflow of about 50 ML/day about two weeks later. These lower flows will maintain connection for a longer duration. Flows are currently expected to conclude in early to mid-December.
