Community low flows design library
The SA Murray-Darling Basin NRM Board ran a competition crowd sourcing ideas from farmers, inventors, engineers, entrepreneurs and designers to propose new ways to secure low flows around dams and watercourse diversions in the Mount Lofty Ranges.
We wanted to build on the range of designs to assist us to better balance the water needs of production and a healthy catchment. Securing low flows will improve the health of our catchments, improve water quality, help to stabilise creek beds and support long-term water security.
A wide range of designs were submitted and the result is this library of ideas, so that people in our communities and businesses can choose, remix and build on ideas that best suits their needs and are appropriate to their situation. These designs are community ideas. They are not approved solutions, but can be used to support developing site-specific proposals.
Below are links to a fact sheet and technical drawings for each community design.
