They were constructed in order to (1) reduce salinity levels in the lower reaches of the River Murray, Lake Alexandrina and Lake Albert and (2) to stabilise the river level, for both upstream irrigation and pumping.

Murray Mouth

Murray Mouth is the point at which the River Murray meets the southern Southern Ocean. The Murray Mouth's location is changeable. Historical records show that the channel out to sea moves along the sand dunes over time. At times of greater river flow and rough seas, the two bodies of water would erode the sand dunes to create a new channel leaving the old one to silt and disappear. The mouth is between two sandhill peninsulas.
