GUNBOWER FOREST HYDRAULIC MODELLING AND SUSTAINABLE DIVERSION LIMITS

Client:
North Central CMA / Murray Darling Basin Committee
location:
Gunbower Forest, VIC / NSW
overview

As part of Victoria’s Murray Darling Basin Plan Sustainable Diversion Limit Offset Works and Measure’s Program, the North Central Catchment Management Authority co-ordinated investigations to deliver environmental water to the Ramsar listed Gunbower Forest in an efficient and sustainable manner.

The objective of these investigations was to assess hydrological, ecological and structural feasibility of a range of water management options to deliver water to the Gunbower Forest.

Water Technology developed a number of 1D-2D hydraulic models of the system to evaluate the potential water management options and improve knowledge of the floodplain system, and worked closely with the CMA and ecologists to develop concepts of infrastructure and watering requirements for various target sites.
