Lower Lakes Barrages Murray

This value represents total number of gates open at 6 am each day. However, the figure shown does not always accurately indicate the average number of open gates over a 24 hour period, as gate openings are often undertaken more than once a day to co-ordinate with natural tidal changes and levels in the Coorong. Fishway openings are not shown and these generally remain open whenever possible. The resultant flow through the barrages is difficult to calculate in near real time and is not shown here, as it is significantly affected by actual lake level, tide and wind conditions.

Information on estimates of flow through the barrages is included in the South Australian Department for Environment and Water "River Murray Flow Reports".
