Around 2,800 ML of inflow was received to reservoirs during May; the first inflows observed for 6 months.
In response to well below inflow to reservoirs during the 2018-19 season, and a climate outlook which favours dry conditions for 2019-20, entitlement holders collectively agreed that resource improvements during May be held over to help secure system operating water and support allocations in the 2019-20 season. As a result, no increase in allocation has occurred this month.
The final allocation announcement for 2018-19 season sees Wimmera-Mallee Pipeline Product remain at 55% allocation this month, and Glenelg Compensation Flow remain at 1% allocation. No allocation has been possible to Recreation entitlement, Wetland entitlement or Commonwealth environmental entitlement during 2018-19.
