Tauwitchere barrage lock set for upgrade

Work is underway to upgrade one of the least known structures in the River Murray system – the Tauwitchere barrage lock at the Murray Mouth.

SA Water is undertaking the essential maintenance on behalf of the Murray-Darling Basin Authority.

The Tauwitchere Lock will be closed to river users during the upgrade, and will re-open once works are complete in late September.

Tauwitchere is one of five barrages that form the wider Goolwa barrages system.
