The latest seasonal allocations for July 2021 have been announced by the Storage Manager. This is the first allocation announcement of the 2021-22 year.


Sufficient inflow was received to reservoirs during June to secure all headworks system operating water requirements for the 2021-22 season. However, further inflow is required before any allocation can be made to entitlements. Operating water is used to meet system losses such as evaporation from reservoirs.


While no allocation has been possible to any entitlement at the time of the July 2021 water resource assessment, bulk entitlement holders collectively have access to approximately 108,000 ML of unused water allocation carried forward from 2020-21 year.


 A July update on reservoir operations is also now available.
