Environmental Works and Measures together with recent natural flow events have initiated a recovery of the Murray – what responses have been observed and are expected?
The seminar focuses on the monitoring of the responses of the floodplain, wetlands and instream river conditions following the recent high river (95,000 ML/d December 2016) and the earlier managed floodplain inundations and weir pool manipulations. A panel of expert speakers will present an analysis of the results.
This seminar follows on from the 2016 HydSoc SA River Murray tour at the peak river flow of December 2016
Sessions will include:
Recent flow events and managed environmental flows
Floodplain works including Chowilla regulator operation and groundwater modelling
Instream water quality responses
Community scale managed wetlands
Flood recession – what happened to the salt spike??
Extended abstracts and presentations will be available to registrants on the day.
