The Currency Creek regulator, near Goolwa, will be removed with dredging already begun.
The regulator was built in 2009, at the height of the drought, to lessen the effects of soil acidification across the Lower Lakes region.
Preparation works have already begun for the removal of the regulator, near Goolwa, with equipment positioned in the creek near the regulator.
The works will be completed over four stages, with the dredging scheduled 24 hours a day, 7 days a week so it can be completed as quickly as possible.
Boaters are reminded that an exclusion zone exists around the regulator and will continue to be enforced during its removal.
People should take care around the area as it is an active construction site and there is restricted access off Myrtle Grove Road.
