The latest seasonal allocations for June 2021 have been announced by the Storage Manager. This is the final allocation announcement for the 2020-21 water year.

 

Inflow to reservoirs during May remained well below average. However, evaporation losses were again slightly lower than the Storage Manager’s conservative estimates, resulting in a small resource improvement. This has enabled a further 1.9 gigalitres to be allocated to the System Reserve, bringing the total volume in the System Reserve to 4.2 gigalitres. Bulk entitlement rules require a total of 15 gigalitres to be allocated to the System Reserve once Wimmera-Mallee Pipeline Product entitlements reach 57% allocation.

 

Wimmera-Mallee Pipeline Product allocations remain unchanged at 57% and Glenelg River Compensation Flow entitlement remains at 1% allocation. No allocation has been possible to Recreation, Wetlands or Commonwealth Environmental entitlements.
