Landholders and river users, including pumpers, on the Mitta Mitta River are advised to take into account the forecast releases of water from Dartmouth Dam and make any necessary adjustment to their river activities.

Transfers from Dartmouth Dam to Hume Dam are expected to continue throughout February and the coming months if conditions remain dry. Throughout the month of February, releases from Dartmouth are expected to cycle between 3,800 ML/day and 5,000 ML/day. This variation aims to better mimic the natural variability of the system while transferring sufficient volume to Hume Dam to meet downstream demands.

A more detailed short-term release forecast is available on the MDBA River Murray data site. Landholders and river users on the Mitta Mitta are advised to regularly check this website for more information on current and future releases from Dartmouth Dam. Summary information about the River Murray system is available in the River Murray weekly report.

If you are observing bank erosion around key assets on your property, as a result of the recent higher river flows, please call the North East Catchment Management Authority (NECMA). NECMA implements a riparian program in conjunction with the MDBA that aims to help manage erosional impacts related to high flow rates along the Mitta Mitta River downstream of Dartmouth Dam.
