Lake Victoria, New South Wales
Lake Victoria is in the extreme south-west corner of New South Wales, next to the Murray River. It is fed by Frenchmans Creek , an anabranch of the Murray above Lock 9, downstream of the junction with the Darling River, and feeds back to the Murray below Lock 7 via Rufus River . It was constructed in the late 1920s and provides a storage of water to manage the regulated release of agreed minimum flows of water down the Murray into South Australia.
Even though Lake Victoria is in New South Wales, it is operated by SA Water , the South Australian water authority.
