THE Nippy’s Loxton Gift
Committee is seeking new members
interested in assisting with the
staging of this major event.
The SA Athletic League, which
administers professional athletics
in this state, conducts the gift meet-
ing while the Loxton committee is
responsible for the local involve-
ment, which includes sponsor-
ship and a range of administrative
The committee meets three times
a year – once for a call-back review
after the Gift meeting, once later in
the year (October/November), and
once prior to the event (January/
February). Committee president
Paul Lewis said anyone interest-
ed in joining the committee could
contact him (0417 623 944), Des
Schliebs (0458 082 247), or Dennis
Hann (0439 847 517).
The twilight event his held at the
Loxton oval each year on the last
Saturday in February.
MDBA total storage decreased by
154 GL last week, with the active
storage at 6918 GL (80 per cent
Dartmouth Reservoir’s storage
volume increased 3 GL last week
to 2946 GL (78 per cent capacity).
Storage volume at Hume Reservoir
fell by 48 GL last week to 2621 GL
(88 per cent capacity).
The pool level at Lake Mulwala
has averaged 124.85m AHD and is
currently at 124.88 m AHD.
Releases from Yarrawonga Weir
were increased from 8,000 ML/
day this week to 8,500 ML/day
to provide variation downstream
of Yarrawonga. These releases
are lower than experienced over
the last few years at this time of
year due to downstream demands
being supplemented by water
from the Goulburn, Campaspe,
Murrumbidgee and Menindee
Lakes. This allows more water to
be conserved in the major storages
of Hume and Dartmouth than would
otherwise have been the case.
On the Edward River system, the
flow through the Edward and Gulpa
offtakes has averaged 1550 ML/day
and 480 ML/day, respectively.
On the lower Murrumbidgee
River, the flow at Balranald aver-
aged 240 ML/day last week.
Downstream on the Murray at
Euston, the flow receded from
11,000 ML/day to 7700 ML/day.
The flow is expected to recede
further over the coming week to
around 6000 ML/day. The lock at
Euston remains closed due to repair
works being undertaken on one of
the upstream lock gates. It is antici-
pated the lock will open next week
if the maintenance works go to
At Wentworth, at the confluence
of the Murray and Darling Rivers,
the flow receded only 2000 ML/day
as the recession of Murray flows
was countered by the increase in
flows from the Darling.
On the Murray, the weir pools at
Locks 9 and 8 are currently close
to Full Supply Level (FSL). Lock
8 is being gradually lowered until it
reaches 50cm below FSL.
The lowering of Lock 7 weir
pool by up to 50cm is already under
way and is currently around 20cm
Weir pool variability helps to
restore a more natural wetting and
drying cycle to riverbanks along
weir pool affected reaches. More
information on possible weir pool
levels in the coming weeks is avail-
able on the MDBA website.
The storage volume at Lake
Victoria fell last week by 41 GL
to 545 GL (81 per cent capacity)
with the releases from Lake Victoria
averaging 5500 ML/day.
The average flow to South
Australia was 15,900 ML/day last
week which was largely made up of
entitlement and additional dilution
flow to South Australia.
A smaller proportion was envi-
ronmental water delivered to South
Australia, including water from
upstream sites that has been pro-
tected to South Australia.
During the Millennium Drought,
salinity levels in Lake Albert
increased to over 19,000 EC due
to the reduced flows into the Lower
Lakes. There has been continual
improvement in salinity levels since
2010 and Lake Albert salinity has
now reached levels of around 1650
EC (measured at Meningie). This
level of salinity has not been seen
for 15 years.
As the flooding subsides in South
Australia, barrage releases have
remained below 10,000 ML/day
averaging around 4000 ML/day last
THE late Peter Leuders gave
this recipe for yabby dip to Val
Goulden, of Renmark in the late
1960s or early 1970s.
Val describes it as a “yummy”
recipe for those not particularly
fond of the freshwater crustacean.
She said if yabbies are no longer
biting, prawns can be used instead.
1⁄2 kilo cleaned, chopped yabbies
2tbsp lemon juice
2tbsp grated onion
1 cup grated cheese
1 cup mayonnaise
1tsp curry powder
q Mix all the ingredients and
serve with dry biscuits or toasted
q Add more yabbies to make it
go further or halve the recipe if you
