WATER ALLOCATIONS AND CARRYOVER

South Australian River Murray water access entitlement holders (Class 3a, 3b, 4, 7 and 8) have been granted a 100% water allocation in 2017-18. Private carryover will not be made available in 2017-18 due to the positive water resource availability outlook and the risk of spill from the Murray-Darling Basin controlled storages.
