Campaspe irrigators will start the new irrigation season with 100 per cent of their high reliability water shares.July 2, 2014 3:01am
Goulburn-Murray Water announced on Tuesday that Campaspe irrigators will start the new irrigation season with 100 per cent of their high reliability water shares.
Murray irrigators received 57 per cent, while farmers on the Goulburn and Loddon systems received 74 per cent.
Resource Manager Mark Bailey said this was the fourth season in a row irrigators received an opening allocation.
‘‘There will be about 450,000Ml carried over in each of the Murray and Goulburn systems and about 30,000Ml in the Campaspe system,’’ he said.
Dr Bailey said private water share holders, including irrigators, were expected to hold about 250,000Ml and 350,000Ml in the Murray and Goulburn systems respectively.
‘‘The remaining volume will be held by the environmental water holders and urban water corporations,’’ he said.
‘‘These volumes will be confirmed in the next announcement.’’
Dr Bailey said seasonal determinations of low-reliability water shares (LRWS) in the Murray, Goulburn and Loddon systems would depend on use and the volume of inflows during winter and spring, but should be available under wet conditions later in the season.
‘‘The chances improve if inflows result in water being debited from spillable water accounts and water is used during periods of unregulated flows without release from storage,’’ Dr Bailey said.
‘‘Under average conditions Campaspe system LRWS seasonal determinations are expected to commence in mid-spring, but are unlikely to reach 100 per cent.
‘‘There will be no LRWS seasonal determinations under dry conditions in the Campaspe system.’’
The next seasonal determination announcement is on July 15.
