NSW Murray High Security

Murrumbidgee

Murrumbidgee General Security

increases to 71% of entitlement

Murrumbidgee High Security

Murrumbidgee General Security allocation has increased by 10% to 71% of entitlement. Now that general security allocation has increased beyond 70%, carryover in accounts will start to boost allocations because individual account limits, 100% entitlement in the Murrumbidgee, are being reached. In other words, those with maximum carryover (30%) cannot benefit from further allocation improvement and their forfeited water is allocated to others.

NSW Murray General Security allocation has increased by 10% to 63% of entitlement. Above average rainfall and wet catchment conditions continue to provide steady system inflows and storage improvements. Now that general security allocation has increased beyond 60%, carryover in accounts will start to boost allocations because individual account limits, 110% entitlement in the NSW Murray, are being reached. In other words, those with maximum carryover (50%) cannot benefit from further allocation improvement. This forfeiture of water from full accounts means that those with little or no carryover benefit the most from further resource improvements.

The next allocation announcement will be 1st November 2016.
