River flows map

The map below displays current flows at gauges we monitor across our region, but you can also sign up to our SMS alert service, which sends text messages concerning when and where environmental flows are occurring, what they aim to achieve, and flow rates.

To sign up, send a sms with the word ‘register’ and full name and locality to 0427 871 565 or email Wimmera CMA.

Text messages will provide information specifically about environmental flows released from storages. Natural flows along creeks and rivers will not be part of this service.
