It has been a somewhat chaotic
couple of months for those of us who
used to work for the Lakes Hub. Many
of us are still around, helping out with
various not-quite-finished projects.
Andrew, in conjunction with the
EcoCreative team and the Coorong
District Council, installed the Fishing
information display at Meningie. Feel
free to pop in during council opening
hours, to check it out.
I have been taking hundreds of wildflower photos, as well as helping organise the community seal count.
With a wetter than usual winter right across the basin, including some huge
downpours, quite a few of us have been celebrating the increased flows out
of the Murray Mouth. To put this into context—The River Murray system
experienced highest July inflow for 20 years. In During the week ending 23
August 2016, total barrage releases were approximately 527 GL.
