September 2017 Allocations have been announced by the Storage Manager. Wimmera-Mallee Pipeline Product has increased from 48% to 65%. Glenelg compensation flow increase from 1% to 9% and Recreation and Wetland entitlements increase from 0% to 8%. There has been no change to Commonwealth entitlements this month.
A September update on Reservoir Operations is also now available.
The Storage Manager has reviewed the current water transfer and has determined it is appropriate to increase the transfer volume to 10,000 ML. This decision is supported by Rocklands Reservoir holding over 138,000 ML, relatively wet catchment conditions and continued inflows. This transfer is consistent with the Storage Manager's Annual Operating Plan.
The Wimmera-Glenelg 2017-18 Outlook Summary for September to November has been released by the Storage Manager.
