Please note: flow rates and heights for all waterways are estimates only, and actual heights on the day may vary due to rainfall, operational releases, or irrigation water orders being delivered. Also, environmental flow deliveries may be offset or replaced by natural rainfall/flow events. In the case of a large rainfall event meeting our flow targets, an environmental flow may not be delivered.
