River Murray reports: daily flow

River Murray reports: daily flow

All monitoring stations measure river height, not flow in the river. A rating table is used at each site to estimate the flow in the river based on the height of the river. These rating tables are compiled from measurements taken over time and at a range of heights.

Given how long it is since river heights of the current magnitude have been seen, there is considerable uncertainty at the higher end of these ratings tables for all gauges.

For the latest estimated daily flow forecast, visit the Department for Environment and Water website.

The Department for Environment and Water also issues a weekly River Murray Flow Report. River Murray Flow Reports contain information about water levels, flow rates and barrage operations as well as any navigation issues and construction activities. When the flow rate at the South Australian border exceeds 40 gigalitres/day, these reports will also include River Murray High Flow Advice. Visit the Water Connect website for more information.

Additionally, there is further information available via an interactive page on the Murray-Darling Basin Authority website. This tracks water flow rates, release rates and river heights across the River Murray system and its tributaries.

We produce daily reports of the state of the River Murray. These include daily flow, salinity level and rain reports.
