South East Flows Restoration Project in Full Swing

Construction continues to progress on the $60 million South East Flows Restoration Project (SEFRP) to reduce salinity in the Coorong, improve water flows to upper South East wetlands and reduce drainage outfall at Kingston.

Assistant Minister for Agriculture and Water Resources, Anne Ruston and SA Minister for Water and the River Murray, Ian Hunter said that South Australia’s Leed Engineering and Construction were making great progress on the 94 kilometer flow path that will connect flows from the Blackford Drain near Kingston to the Coorong South Lagoon at Salt Creek.

The Australian Government is contributing up to $123.3 million for 23 management actions to support the restoration and ongoing resilience of the internationally important Coorong, Lower Lakes and Murray Mouth site,” Minister Ruston said.

Minister Hunter said that the project includes 13 kilometers of new drainage channel, upgrading 81 kilometers of existing channel, and installation of new regulators, road crossings, and fishways.

According to Hunter, the project will divert water to wetlands along the entire alignment including the Murrabinna Flat and Taratap Wetlands, and most significantly Tilley Swamp.

The project is funded by the Australian and the South Australian governments and is being delivered by the SA Department of Environment, Water and Natural Resources. Works started in March 2017 and are expected to be completed by mid-2018.
