Securing low flows in the Mount Lofty Ranges

Producing premium food and wine from South Australia’s Mount Lofty Ranges is a state priority – and it needs water. The State Government is committed to this priority and is also striving to get the balance right to make sure that while productivity is optimised, the region’s environmental health is also preserved.
The Securing Low Flows project focuses on how water is stored and diverted from watercourses for use on farms. Dams are important because they provide water security, but they have changed the pattern and amount of water flowing through the Mt Lofty Ranges. Low flows have been largely impeded and parts of some catchments go without flow for long periods of time.
