The Storage Manager has released its Annual Operating Plan for the 2018-19 water year. A quarterly operating plan supplement for July to September 2018 accompanies the annual plan, and looks specifically at reservoir system operation this 3-month period. The Annual Operating Plan and operating plan supplements are available here.
Wimmera-Mallee Pipeline Product received a 9% allocation, with no allocation able to be made to Glenelg Compensation Flow, Recreation entitlement, Wetland entitlement or Commonwealth environmental entitlement. Opening allocations are reflective of inflows to reservoirs during June having been below average.
The Storage Manager has also declared a Low Risk of Spill for the Wimmera-Glenelg system during the 2018-19 water year.
A July update on Reservoir Operations is also now available.
The June 2018 Assessment has been announced by the Storage Manager. The Grampians headworks system has received 310 ML of inflow. Rainfall has exceeded evaporation for the month of May. Due to conservative estimates of the losses forecast for May compared to what actually occurred, the System Reserve has increased by approximately 4,080 ML and is now 43,856 ML. The System Reserve must reach 45,000 ML before further allocation can be made to entitlements this season.
