Autumn releases are forecast to average below 5,000 ML/day, which is less than the average release rate of 7,000 ML/day over the last three months.

The releases from Dartmouth Dam may vary from those forecast and flows on the Mitta Mitta may increase at any time if there’s rainfall in the catchment downstream of the dam.

A further flow advice will be issued when there is a significant change to releases.

Landholders and river users on the Mitta Mitta are advised to regularly check the current flows and forecasts on the MDBA website for more information on releases from Dartmouth Dam.
