Channel digging underway to reopen Snowy entrance
Work to reopen the Snowy River mouth at Marlo commenced yesterday and will be concluded today if conditions remain favourable.
River flows remain too weak to push the entrance open naturally so a channel is being dug by contractors.
Water levels are 0.82m above AHD on the gauge located on the public jetty in Marlo. This is also around the level of the levee systems.
CEO of the East Gippsland Catchment Management Authority, Graeme Dear, said "Parks Victoria have put a contractor to work to dig a channel across the sand beach to open the entrance."
