Wimmera River flows

Jul 29, 2021

The sight and sound of running water is one we all love!

It’s one of the wettest Julys the Wimmera has had for 10-15 years and creeks, wetlands, rivers and lakes across our soaked catchment are all getting welcome inflows.

We took photos at Faux Bridge on the Horsham-Wal Wal Road on July 26, there was a gentle flow of around 300ML a day, which passed through Horsham and is continuing towards Dimboola and Jeparit.

We are confident that due to consistent rainfall over the past several weeks soaking our catchment, that this flow will reach the end of the river and into Lake Hindmarsh.

It’s a real boost for water quality and the fish and animals that rely on healthy waterways to thrive.
