The latest seasonal allocation for December 2019 have been announced by the Storage Manager

 

No measurable inflow was received to reservoirs during November. Mild day time temperatures during much of November resulted in reservoir evaporation losses being slightly lower than forecast, with the savings able to be directed to increasing allocations. This has enabled Wimmera-Mallee Pipeline Product allocation to increase by 1% this month to have a 36% allocation. Glenelg River Compensation Flow remains at 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.
