The Living Murray Initiative and associated Environmental Works and Measures Program were established to improve the health of the River Murray system through recovery of water and effective distribution to the environment.

Water Technology has been involved in a number of eco-hydraulic projects through these initiatives to develop and assess water management options for improved environmental watering.

Water Technology undertook hydrodynamic modelling to assess proposed works and measures to significantly enhance the existing watering regime of the wetland systems around Lindsay, Mulcra and the Wallpolla Islands. This involved comparing flood extents based on historical, current and proposed infrastructure management. Prior to the development of environmental watering infrastructure, Water Technology undertook advection-dispersion model, investigated rates of mixing and turn-over times in the upper reaches of the system.

Scope:
