The Murray-Darling Basin Authority is about to launch a new webinar series to explain more about water management in the river systems it manages.

MDBA Chief Executive, Phillip Glyde said the series would deep dive into a range of water-related topics of interest to Basin communities.

"Water management is complex and understandably communities and water users want to know more about river management and the issues that impact them," Mr Glyde said.

"Our webinar series will run regularly throughout the year and previous episodes will be available to watch online afterwards."

The first webinar on Tuesday March 9 Capacity issues - Managing delivery risks in the River Murray will look at changes in water use over the past 25 years and how that has influenced delivery risks.

It would include changes associated with new horticulture developments in the Sunraysia, water for the environment and intervalley trade.

The webinar was also intended to "bust myths" relating to growth in water demand and how environmental water was being used.

The webinar will be led by the MDBA's head of river management Andrew Reynolds with support from Joe Davis and Ben Dyer.

"This is your opportunity to get an inside view of how the river is run and the complex issues we're managing, and put your question to our river operations team," Mr Glyde said.
