AWMA supplies regulating structures for Murray project.
The gunbower koondrook-perricoota forest is a river red gum forest in Australia. Goulburn-Murray water is currently working with the MDBC and NCCMA on a living Murray project to improve the flow regime of the forest with environmental flows from the Murray River.
In order to meet specified ecological objectives, a main requirement of this project was to upgrade the Barham cut and Shillinglaw regulators. Both are located between Cohuna and Koondrook Victoria, on the Murray River.
The wetland regulating structures consisted of 2 in 1 aluminium head and discharge gates of varying sizes, single head and discharge gates and aluminium undershot gates and 8m walkways.
2 in 1 head and discharge gates were designed to allow for low flows while avoiding the need for civil works. Both regulators were also fitted with stainless steel fixed and rotating carp screens.
