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.
The blue-green algae warning for Taylors Lake has been lifted.

March 2016-17 Allocations have been announced by the Storage Manager. The system reserve increased by approximately 300 megalitres, with allocations remaining unchanged. Wimmera Mallee Pipeline Product, Glenelg Compensation flow, Recreation, and Wetland entitlements received 100% allocation in November 2016.
A February update on Reservoir Operations is also now available.
