Lake Mokoan is an artificial lake in Victoria. It was created in 1971 when water from Broken River and Hollands Creek was diverted into Winton Swamp roughly 7 km from Benalla
The reports below on the effects of the decommissioning the lake were prepared by The Murray-Darling Freshwater Research Centre (MDFRC).
The aim of the MDFRC is to provide the scientific knowledge necessary for the management and sustained utilisation of the Murray-Darling Basin water resources. The MDFRC is a joint
venture between the Murray-Darling Basin Authority, La Trobe University and CSIRO (through its Division of Land and Water). Additional investment is provided through the
Australian Government Department of the Environment, Water, Heritage and the Arts.
