Bring it On’ Water arrives in the Menindee Lakes

The first major river flow to arrive in the Menindee Lakes since 2016 has wet soil that has remained dry for years, ending a prolonged period of no-inflows

The water made its way down the Barwon-Darling river system into Lake Wetherell, following good rainfall in February. Flows are expected to continue over the coming months.

NSW Minister for Water, Property and Housing Melinda Pavey said Lake Wetherell could see inflows of between 230 to 260 gigalitres, equating to more than 12 months of town water supply for the Lower Darling.

“It’s a relief to see this water replenishing parts of the state that have arguably endured the longest and most severe of the drought conditions,” Mrs Pavey said.
