Murray Mouth Dredging on Track

The Murray Mouth dredging operations, aimed to maintain connectivity between the river and the Southern Ocean, are now in full swing with little more than two months left to complete the project.

Dredges are currently operating in the Tauwitchere and Goolwa Channels.

A total of approximately 290,000 cubic meters of sand has been removed so far. Recent monitoring has confirmed an improvement in the function of both channels as a result of dredging.

Mariners are reminded that navigation through the Murray Mouth is only permitted during daylight hours and that Exclusion Zones established around the dredging operations remain in place to ensure public safety.

The Murray Mouth dredging project is set to be completed by the end of June 2015.
