The Storage Manager has released its Annual Operating Plan for the 2021-22 water year. A quarterly operating plan supplement for July to September 2021 accompanies the annual plan, and looks specifically at reservoir system operation over this 3-month period.
The Annual Operating Plan and operating plan supplements are available here.
The Storage Manager's latest allocation outlook for August to November 2021 is now available.
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.
