EPBC Referral: The Coorong, SA – Diversion of fresh water to southern region of Ramsar-listed wetland

The South East Flows Restoration Project is one of 19 management actions being implemented by the Coorong Lower Lakes and Murray Mouth Recovery Project, and aims to:

(1)  divert additional relatively fresh water from the Upper South-East Drainage System to the Coorong South Lagoon to assist in managing salinity during periods when River Murray flows are insufficient to maintain the Coorong’s health, thus building resilience and supporting a healthy ecosystem; and,

(2)  provide additional environmental benefits by increasing flow through en route wetlands in the Upper South East.

Submissions invited until Monday 11 April 2016.
