Flow Summary

Flow varies considerably both with season and annually.  The majority of flows occur between May and October, with peak median monthly flows of 760ML recoded in August (maximum monthly total 1300 ML, minimum monthly total 77 ML).  Based on the current record, total annual flows varied from 21,000ML in 1992 to 1500 ML in 2008.  Of particular importance to water quality, peaks in flows which are considerably higher than average flows, can account for a large proportion of the total annual flow.  In April 2010, peak flows of 280 ML/hour were reached, which is enough water to fill an olympic sized swimming pool 108 times in an hour.
