A new information portal for Murray Darling Basin water information is now live via the Bureau Of Metrology.

It follows three years of development and features additional river diagrams, First Nations Cultural information, photographs of rivers & further information on storage infrastructure and significant locations.

Bureau of Meteorology General Manager of Agriculture and Water, Matthew Coulton, said the portal provides greater transparency and better access to Basin-wide information in the one website, so users no longer need to go to many different websites to find what they need.

‘The portal brings together current and historical information, searchable by town, storage, river, catchment or current location, so you can compare current state with previous years,’ Mr Coulton said.
