Murray Mouth Project to Enter Final Phase

After five months of dredging, the Murray Mouth project is about to reach 400,000 cubic meters mark as it enters the final phase of works.

The project, aimed to maintain connectivity between the Murray River and the Southern Ocean, is set to be completed by the end of June 2015.

According to the latest report from the Department of Environment, Water and Natural Resources, dredges are currently operating in the Tauwitchere and Goolwa Channels. At May 3rd 2105, the crews have removed approximately 373,000 cubic meters of sand.

Recent monitoring has confirmed an improvement in the condition 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 are still in place to ensure public safety.
