A TWO-week water management education program for 42 engineering students from 10 countries has been an “eye-opening” experience, according to the Mallee Regional Innovation Centre (MRIC).

Politics, environmental watering and infrastructure have been among the key topics covered with the students, who have been visiting the region from Egypt, Brazil, Canada, Nepal and China and other countries.

The group visited Psyche Bend, the junction of the Murray and Darling rivers and Hattah Lakes, while representatives from Lower Murray Water and the Mallee Catchment Management Authority have held discussions with the group as part of their International River Basin Management subject.
