15 April 2024 Projected Opening Allocation

The projected minimum opening allocation for South Australian River Murray irrigators for the 2024-25 water year is 100%.

As the projected opening allocation is greater than 50%, the carryover of unused allocations from 2023-24 will not be available in 2024-25.

As the projected minimum opening allocation is 100 percent, no more allocation announcements are scheduled in relation to the 2024-25 water year. In mid-June 2024, the volume of water available for allocation will be gazetted and allocations issued for use from 1 July 2024.
