No measurable inflows were recorded to reservoirs during March, and observed evaporation losses from reservoirs equalled the Storage Manager’s projections. As a result, no increase to allocations has been possible with the April 2020 water resource assessment. Wimmera-Mallee Pipeline Product allocation remains at 42%, and Glenelg River Compensation Flow remains at 1% allocation. No allocation has yet been possible to Recreation entitlement, Wetland entitlement or Commonwealth environmental entitlement.
An April update on reservoir operations is also now available.
