Allocations for January 2019 have been announced by the Storage Manager.


Even with above average rainfall at Grampians reservoirs during December, no measureable inflow was observed, due to the dry condition of catchments. The rainfall received resulted in much lower than forecast reservoir system losses for December, and has contributed to Wimmera-Mallee Pipeline Product increasing by 9% to have a 54% allocation. Glenelg Compensation Flow remains at 1% allocation this month. No allocation has yet been possible to Recreation entitlement, Wetland entitlement or Commonwealth environmental entitlement.
