The month of March was dry, with below average rainfall recorded at all reservoirs. A small improvement in the volume available for allocation resulted primarily from a reduction in forecast headworks system losses from April until the end of June 2022.
The volume allocated to the System Reserve increased from 14,500 megalitres to 15,000 megalitres this month. The resource improvement also enabled allocations to Wimmera-Mallee Pipeline Product entitlements to increase from 57% to 58%. Glenelg River Compensation Flow entitlement allocation increased from 1% to 2%. No allocation has been possible to Recreation, Wetlands or Commonwealth Environmental Water Holder entitlements.
