*** The opening allocation for South Australian River Murray water users will be 40 percent ***

On 15 June 2020, the Department for Environment and Water (DEW) has announced that the opening allocation for the 2020-21 water year will be 40 percent.

The updated projections indicate that even if an extreme dry scenario plays out over the next six months, South Australian Class 3 (High Security) allocations are projected to reach 100 per cent by November 2020. In other words, allocations are projected to reach 100 per cent if inflow conditions in 2020-21 correspond to or are better than the worst five per cent of years in the recent historical record.
