Lake Nagambie to be lowered for winter shutdown

Tuesday 11 May, 2021

Lake Nagambie’s water level will be lowered over the winter period.

Goulburn-Murray Water (GMW) will lower Lake Nagambie and the Goulburn Weir pool by up to 50cm on 15 May 2021, with water levels returning to normal operating level by 1 August 2021 in readiness for the irrigation season.

The lowering will take place during the irrigation shutdown, and will assist with water harvesting. Water quality will not be affected by the lowering of the lake.

GMW Manager Storage Operations South Scott Wikman said lake users should be aware that the lake level will be lower than usual during the winter period.

“We ask that you take the water levels into the account if you are planning on visiting the lake,” Mr Wikman said.

“Lowering the lake will also provide the opportunity for landowners to undertake maintenance work on existing jetties and private boat ramps.”
