Irwin Inlet Opening

Published: Thursday, 11 July 2019 at 9:33:31 AM

The Shire of Denmark will be opening the Irwin Inlet at 9.30am on Monday, 15 July 2019 .

The water level in the inlet has reached a sufficient level that warrants the Inlet being opened, pursuant to the Irwin Inlet Sandbar Opening Protocol. 

The time of the opening, apart from the height of the water, is determined by the tide and at 9.37am is high tide and the water will begin running out.

The minimum level is 0.440m and absolute maximum level is 0.770m.  The current level is 0.59m. Rainfall predicted from now until Monday is minimal (less than 3mm).

Signs will be placed in the vicinity by Shire Rangers.
