Australia: dredging resumes at mouth of Murray River

Project Updates // January 25, 2017

The Murray Valley Standard reports that dredging operations have restarted at the Murray Mouth after the recent period of high flows came to an end.

Department of Environment, Water and Natural Resources spokesman Jarrod Eaton said the extra water flowing from interstate had helped the Goolwa and Tauwitchere channels reconnect with the ocean. “But the high flows did not scour enough sand at the Murray Mouth compared to the longer period of high flows in 2010-11,” he said.

“Now ...releases over the barrages are being reduced. Dredging has again resumed to ensure the Murray Mouth remains open, with only one dredge required at this stage.”
