Riverbank collapse arose in 2008 due to unprecedented low water levels in the lower River Murray below Lock 1 (Blanchetown) to Wellington.  There have been no reported incidents of riverbank collapse since early 2011.

It is considered that riverbank collapse is more likely to occur during times of low water in the lower River Murray.
