Community Information Sheet: Issue 9 Management of Menindee Lakes 2011-2012

After almost three months travel time, the flood peak in the Darling River has arrived at the Menindee Lakes.Inflows of nearly 60,000 megalitres per day were experienced during the third week of April, but are now falling and have now reduced below 40,000 megalitres per day. Airspace in the lakes minimised the flood impact around Menindee township and downstream. Upstream at Wilcannia, the river is falling steadily and no further rises are anticipated from this event.
