Reservoirs received 1,050 ML of inflow during October, which is around 4% of the October average. Despite very low inflows, mild weather conditions saw lower than forecast reservoir evaporation losses, with the savings able to be directed to increasing allocations. This has enabled Wimmera-Mallee Pipeline Product allocation to increase by 5% this month to have a 35% allocation and Glenelg River Compensation Flow to receive a 1% allocation. No allocation has yet been possible to Recreation entitlement, Wetland entitlement or Commonwealth environmental entitlement.
A November update on Reservoir operations is also now available.
