GENERAL security irrigators in the Murray and Murrumbidgee valleys have received water allocation increases.
NSW’s chief water bureaucrat, deputy director general Gavin Hanlon, said the allocation boost resulted from reduced delivery losses and storage inflows and improvement in the Snowy Scheme’s Murray resource.
Murray Valley general security allocation was boosted by 6 per cent, to 59 percent and Murrumbidgee was increased 2pc, to 51pc of entitlement.
There was no change to current inter-valley trade arrangements. The Murrumbidgee Valley is unrestricted; Lower Darling is closed; Murray is restricted around the Barmah Choke – meaning downstream net trade across the choke is barred.
Mr Hanlon said that releases from storages were forecast to continue through autumn if conditions remained dry.
In the Murrumbidgee Valley, Burrinjuck storage had fallen to 43pc and Blowering was currently 30pc full.
In the Murray, Hume storage has fallen to 42pc of capacity and Dartmouth is just over 80pc full.
