Dredging project at the Murray Mouth, which is aimed to maintain connectivity (exchange of water) between the river and the Southern Ocean, is just a few weeks away from being officially finished.
Dredges are currently operating in the Tauwitchere and Goolwa Channels. So far, a total of approximately 503,000 cubic meters of sand had been removed from the area.
Routine monitoring has confirmed an improvement in the condition of both channels as a result of the dredging operations.
The project began on January 9th 2015 and is on track for completion by the end of this June.
