The River Murray

The River Murray

The River Murray is central to the life and development of South Australia. It has played an important role in our history and has helped us get to where we are today.

SA Water plays an active role in managing the River Murray in South Australia. This management includes monitoring, reporting, and lock management.

High flows in the River Murray

All navigation passes at the locks and weirs have now been re-instated following the recent high flow period. Weir pools will return to their normal operating ranges in early to mid-January.

Lock One remains higher than the operating level due to the recession of the high flows, however it will also soon reduce in height over the coming week.

Boat operators are advised to take caution over the next few weeks, as floating debris has been noted in and around the locks and weirs.

Updated information will be available on this page.
