We have been operating through November with an irrigation allocation based on 75% of monthly volume for below dam users. Out final assessment is that total irrigation use averaged 70% for the month which is a good outcome and the intention is to continue on into December with the same constraint – ie. all users below dam should base their monthly water use on using no more than 75% of their volumetric entitlement.
We do need to signal now though, that we believe it is highly likely we will be operating on a 50% allocation regime from the start of the New Year.
