15 June 2023 Opening Allocation

The opening allocation for South Australian River Murray irrigators for the 2023-24 water year is 100%.

As the projected opening allocation announced on 17 April 2023 was greater than 50%, carryover of allocations from 2022-23 will not be available in 2023-24.

As the opening allocation is 100%, no more allocation announcements are scheduled for the 2023-24 water year. The volume of water available for allocation will now be gazetted and allocations issued for use from 1 July 2023.
