Allocations on the rise

By Alana Christensen

Seasonal determinations for northern Victoria have been revised, with all systems receiving an increase.

The new seasonal determination sees the Murray system move from 2 per cent of high-reliability water shares (HRWS) to 6 per cent HRWS.

The Goulburn and Loddon systems increased from 2 per cent HRWS to 8 per cent HRWS, the Campaspe system moved from 26 per cent HRWS to 31 per cent HRWS and the Bullarook system increased from 19 per cent HRWS to 100 per cent HRWS and 100 per cent of low‑reliability water shares (LRWS).

Seasonal determinations in the Broken system remain on 0 per cent HRWS.

Resource Manager Andrew Shields said recent rain in the upper catchment had improved the volume of water available.
