Sup­ple­men­tary water ac­cess cut

Southern Riverina news - - -

Act­ing NSW Water Com­mis­sioner Colin Mclean last week an­nounced the end of sup­ple­men­tary water ac­cess in the Mur­ray Val­ley.

Mr Mclean said as the con­di­tions have be­gun to turn dry and ir­ri­ga­tion de­mand has in­creased, sup­ple­men­tary ac­cess has to come to an end.

‘‘The cur­rent con­di­tions also mean that the flood pre-re­leases from the Menindee Lakes sys­tem are to be re­duced and will re­turn the Lower Dar­ling River to a reg­u­lated flow from late Jan­uary.

‘‘The NSW Of­fice of Water will con­tinue to closely mon­i­tor the sit­u­a­tion and will pro­vide fur­ther ad­vice if con­di­tions change.’’
