Remote sensing data is being trialled by the Murray–Darling Basin Authority (MDBA) to track an environmental flow through the Barwon–Darling Rivers.

The flow, which was coordinated by the Commonwealth Environmental Water Holder and NSW Office of Environment and Heritage, started in mid-April and is expected to flow through to Wilcannia by late May.
