Southern Spring Flow of the Murray River 2020

News / Event start date
Event end date

During the period from September – December 2020 water for the environment will be released from Hume Dam to benefit key wetlands from the mid‑Murray to the lower Murray, and all the way to the Lower Lakes and Coorong. Early season rainfall has led to good natural flows in the River Murray over autumn and winter. To build on these flows, small releases of water for the environment began from Hume Dam in September. These flows helped restore winter baseflows to support native fish such as Murray cod in the mid-Murray.
