SA opening water irrigation allocations rise again

This year's water allocations will rise again as recent rainfalls and water availability projections from the latest data allow another 2 per cent to be added.

South Australia irrigators will have a minimum opening water allocation of 26pc, a rise from the 14pc predicted in April and 22pc in May.

The Department for Environment and Water has stated that despite an extended dry period further increases to allocations are likely as most inflows into the Murray system usually occurs between July and October.

Projections have shown that there is a 90pc likelihood that allocations will increase to at least 87pc and just over a 70pc likelihood they could increase to 100pc.
