Notes on Adelaide podcast: Water, everywhere

This week, we explore the implications of rising River Murray water levels in this wet and wild spring.

Oct 26, 2022, updated Oct 26, 2022

Floods in Victoria and some historic dumps of rain on this side of the border have authorities rushing to shore up levees and provide sandbags for river communities.

What does it all mean for water levels in the River Murray – and what about the environmental consequences?

Joining David Washington on the podcast this week to explore all of these issues is InDaily senior journalist Belinda Willis, an experienced writer on the River Murray, and Environment Department water expert Chrissie Bloss.

Bloss explains how the river is managed in South Australia and how flooding can profoundly affect the environment – right down to the Murray Mouth.
