The latest seasonal allocation for February 2020 have been announced by the Storage Manager

 

Despite good rainfall late in January, no measurable inflow was received to reservoirs from their catchments. However, rainfall received directly on reservoirs provided a small boost to volumes in storage. This rainfall has provided sufficient water to increase Wimmera-Mallee Pipeline Product allocation from 36% to 40%. Glenelg River Compensation Flow remains at 1% allocation. No allocation has yet been possible to Recreation entitlement, Wetland entitlement or Commonwealth environmental entitlement.


A February update on Reservoir operations is also now available.

 

The Storage Manager has released its third quarterly operating plan supplement for January to March 2020. This supplement accompanies the Annual Operating Plan and looks specifically at reservoir system operation over the upcoming 3-month period. The Annual Operating Plan and operating plan supplements are available here.

No measurable inflow was received to reservoirs for a second consecutive month in December. Persistent hot weather over recent weeks has resulted in very high evaporation losses from reservoirs. As a result, there has not been any increase in the volume of water available for allocation. Allocations remain unchanged this month, with Wimmera-Mallee Pipeline Product remaining at 36% allocation and Glenelg River Compensation Flow remaining at 1% allocation. No allocation has yet been possible to Recreation entitlement, Wetland entitlement or Commonwealth environmental entitlement.

 

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.

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.

No allocation has yet been possible to Glenelg River Compensation Flow, Recreation entitlement, Wetland entitlement or Commonwealth environmental entitlement.
