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


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.
