Construction underway at Mulcra Island.

As part of the Mallee CMA's commitment to keeping community members up to date with the progress of works at Mulcra Island, a new construction pictorial is being regularly updated on our website.

Construction began in June 2010 to build five environmental regulators that will enable the flooding of up to 800 hectares of drought-stressed floodplain at Mulcra Island. Subject to water availability, the regulators will be used in tandem with a variation of Lock 8 levels to reinstate a more natural frequency of flows down the Potterwalkagee Creek, which is the anabranch of the Murray River that forms Mulcra Island. 

The works are being completed under The Living Murray program. The Living Murray is implemented in the local region by the Mallee Catchment Management Authority (CMA), on behalf of the Department of Sustainability and Environment and in partnership with Parks Victoria. Construction works are being managed by SA Water.
