The mighty Murray river is not the roaring wide open body of water it used to be. Several dams punctuate the natural flow of water through over 2000kms of water course through several states. Pictured here, the wall is opened somewhat to allow water through the hydro electricity plant which generates power for the region and controls the flow of water and thus, the level of the Murray river. Where the river meets the ocean is often described as a series of stagnant ponds, the water used for agriculture and irrigation along the way. Affectionately, but not favorably, they are sometimes referred to as “the Murray ponds”.
