Latest announcements

Our 14 April 2022 Allocation Statement is now available.

The projected minimum opening allocation for South Australian River Murray irrigators for the 2022–23 water year is 100%

With the projected minimum opening allocation being greater than 50%, carryover of allocations from 2021–22 will not be available in 2022–23.

As the projected minimum opening allocation is 100% for the 2022–23 water year, no more allocation announcements are scheduled for the 2022–23 water year. In mid-June 2022 the volume of water available for allocation will be gazetted and allocations issued for use from 1 July 2022.
