About high flows

The flow of water into South Australia via the Murray River has continued to climb in recent weeks and is expected to increase. People are encouraged to access information about river flow volumes from the SA River Murray Flow report on the Department of Environment and Water website. An updated report is produced each Friday.

How do I find the latest information about the high flows?

For up-to-date information about high flows and high flow predictions, head to the Department of Environment and Water website. In addition to weekly River Murray Flow Reports, you can also see a list of current warnings, frequently asked questions, and a suite of mapping tools to support flood planning and response:

Where can I find out about flood-related road closures?

The Department for Infrastructure and Transport's website includes the most up-to-date information about road access.

The department has also prepared maps for Berri, Waikerie, Swan Reach and Murray Bridge regions to indicate the travel impact due to expected road and ferry closures as water levels rise.

What role does the Murraylands and Riverland Landscape Board play in times of high river flows?

Many of the river’s wetlands and floodplains will receive additional water as a result of the high flows. The Murraylands and Riverland Landscape Board’s wetland team will continue to monitor key sites over the coming month to increase our understanding on how these environments respond to high flows.
