The following document details an analysis conducted to determine dry season environmental flows for the Meander River below Meander Dam.

An environmental water requirement has been identified for the Meander River. The EWR takes the form of an Environmental Flow (or EFlow) regime. An environmental flow regime consists of the flow regime in the river which has those flow components which will maintain and protect key aquatic values.

The environmental flows analysis presented here was conducted using the approach developed by Freshwater Systems and DPIPWE over the last 15 years (e.g. see Davies and Warfe 2002, Davies et al. 2002). This method was used by Hydro Tasmania (2002a) to derive minimum environmental flows for the Meander EWR, consisting of a single minimum environmental flow (EFlow) derived for each month of the year. This EFlow regime consists of a set of seasonally varying (monthly) minimum mean daily flows of define magnitude which should be maintained in order to protect the environmental values
