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.
