Landholders and river users, including pumpers, on the Mitta Mitta River are advised to take into account forecast changes in the release of water from Dartmouth Dam and make any necessary adjustment to their river activities.

On Friday 7 April, releases will be increased from 300 megalitres per day (ML/day) to 1,000 ML/day.

Releases will start being reduced on Sunday 9 April, and will return to 300 ML/day by Monday 10 April.

This pulse in the Mitta Mitta River will be of benefit to the local environment, by varying river height.

The releases from Dartmouth Dam may vary from those forecast and flows on the Mitta Mitta may increase at any time if rain falls in the catchment downstream of the dam.
