The Coonancoocabill wetland comprises a main lagoon and two smaller wetlands located downstream of Narrandera on the Murrumbidgee River.
Isolation of the larger part of the Coonancoocabill Lagoon will provide estimated water savings of 632ML p.a. for a cost of $1.2M.
Works include a sheet pile regulator with two dual leaf AWMA Combination Gates, fitted with IQ Rotork Actuators, to be remotely operated by State Water.
The regulator will improve potential native fish-breeding events and reduce erosion associated with frequent water level changes. State Water is the proponent of this project with water savings to be delivered to Water for Rivers.
