It will be interesting to see the impact the floodwaters currently in Southern Queensland have when then get into the darling. Hopefully a substantial amount will make it past the cotton grower's dams etc.

There is currently 200+GL of water passing Dirranbandi in QLD per day and will be for at least a week before the flow rate begins to reduce. With the large flow in the river prior to this flood event I would suspect that those NSW irrigators who didn't fill their reserves will take a small proportion and Menindee Lakes will take some to fill all the lakes.
The powers to be are already predicting that the river will recieve a good flow for it's entire length.

Mate,
Heard the bloke from BOM hydrological section talking on the radio yesterday say that the total amount of water that fell on south Queensland over the past week or so would be in the order of 7,000 Gigalitres ! or 7 million Megalitres. Even when the irrigation dams, town weirs and water holes are all full, there will be plenty to run all the way down the river. So look out down there!
cheers

Keep out finger crossed we get a good flow down the Darling. Who knows, we might get to see the ana-branch of it flowing as well.

Toonfish, Lake Menindee and also Lake Cawndilla have to fill up before any water goes down the Anabranch I think.
I don't think a decision has been made yet, or not made public anyway, if they are going to put water into Lake Menindee. That's been dry for about 8 years now.
The water drains from Menindee into Cawndilla, and unfortunately they can't get it out of Cawndilla apart from letting it go down the Anabranch.
That's been dry for about 10 years I think, so that would soak up a huge amount before it gets to the Murray.
