River Murray reports: daily flow

River Murray reports: daily flow

The Department for Environment and Water issues a weekly River Murray Flow Report. River Murray Flow Reports contain information about water levels, flow rates and barrage operations as well as any navigation issues and construction activities. When the flow rate at the South Australian border exceeds 40 gigalitres/day, these reports will also include River Murray High Flow Advice.
Visit the Water Connect website for more information.

There is also further information available via an interactive page on the Murray-Darling Basin Authority website. This tracks water flow rates, release rates and river heights across the River Murray system and its tributaries.

Flood watches and warnings may be in place at some locations. For the latest flood warnings in South Australia visit the State Emergency Service website.

For the latest rainfall, river conditions and flood warnings upstream of the South Australian border, visit the Bureau of Meteorology's website.

We produce daily reports of the state of the River Murray. These include daily flow, salinity level and rain reports.
