The latest seasonal allocations for July 2019 have been announced by the Storage Manager. This is the first allocation announcement of the 2019-20 year.


Around 8,000 ML of inflow was received to reservoirs during June; however, due to below average inflows over the past two years, further inflows are now required before any allocation can be made to entitlements. Additional inflows are necessary to secure the full headworks system operating water requirement for the 2019-20 year. Operating water meets system losses such as evaporation from reservoirs.

The first allocation announcement for 2019-20 season sees all entitlements receive a 0% allocation. Entitlement holders collectively have access to 116,600 ML of unused water allocation carried forward from 2018-19 year.
