Wentworth weir being temporarily lowered

The Lock 10 weir pool is expected to begin being lowered later next week, as the Darling River flow pulse reaches the Darling arm of the Wentworth Weir pool. The exact timing will depend on how quickly the water from Menindee moves along the Darling. This action aims to minimise the period of impact on water users.

Boat operators, recreational users, river pumpers, stock owners and others along the River Murray and Darling River upstream of Wentworth are advised to take changing water levels into account and adjust their activities as necessary.
