An evaluation of the environmental flow needs of the NW Bay River was required by
Kingborough Council. This evaluation is focussed on the amount, likely environmental
benefits and practicalities of delivery of enhanced flows downstream of the Hobart Water
takes in upper NW Bay River.
An initial environmental flow assessment for NW Bay River was conducted by the
Department of Primary Industry Water and Environment's Water Assessment and
Planning Branch (Krasnicki and Graham 2001). This assessment focussed on minimum
environmental flow requirements (i.e. excluding flood/high flows which are not
significantly altered in the upper-middle reaches of the NW Bay River) for instream life -
fish, macroinvertebrates and platypus.
