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

Releases will be reduced from 600 megalitres per day (ML/day) to 200 ML/day on Saturday 30 April.

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