This morning the Northern Victoria Resource Manager updated the allocation forecasts for next year. In short, this is what the forecast expects allocations to be on these dates next year for high reliability entitlements:
|Valley||2 July||15 October|
|Murray||40 %||100 %|
|Goulburn||20 %||100 %|
|Loddon||20 %||100 %|
|Campaspe||100 %||100 %|
For the risk of spill in 2018/19, we have these figures:
|Valley||Risk of Spill|
Irrigators on the Victorian Murray should consider selling any water that will be carried over on their spillable account, given that there is a good chance it will be lost. You can find out whether the water will be on your spillable account by using the carryover calculator.
Further commentary on the forecast is on the NVRM website.
