Lower Murray-Darling Projects

Coorong, Lower Lakes and Murray Mouth Projects

The objective of the Coorong, Lower Lakes and Murray Mouth (CLLMM) Recovery Project is to assist the South Australian Government in managing the site for ecological health and to support the implementation and objectives of the CLLMM Long-Term Plan. The objectives of the Long-Term Plan are to provide a clear direction for the future management of the CLLMM region as a healthy, productive and resilient Wetland of International Importance.

South Australia Riverine Recovery Project

The Riverine Recovery Project aims to implement an improved riverine management regime for the River Murray from the South Australian/Victorian border to Wellington in South Australia and deliver water savings for transfer to the Commonwealth for environmental purposes. The activities undertaken as part of this project reflect a landscape-scale approach to addressing the problems of the River Murray and are expected to provide for a more effective, efficient and flexible management of environmental water.
