April 2016-17 Allocations a have been announced by the Storage Manager. System allocations remain unchanged this month, however mild weather and rainfall in late March resulted in operational savings and an increase in system reserve of 2,800 ML.
An April update on Reservoir Operations is also now available.
Following widespread rainfall in the Grampians catchment this week, the Storage Manager is taking this opportunity to conduct a small transfer between Lake Bellfield and Lake Fyans. The transfer will occur between 23 and 31 March, providing around 1,300 ML of freshening flows to Lake Fyans, as well as a boost to water levels.
The Storage Manager’s Annual Operating Plan provides details of water transfers which may occur during each water year.
