Assumptions, limitations, caveats and approximations
In the 2011 Account, the volume of surface water diverted under supply by agreements was incorrectly reported as zero. This error has been corrected in the 2012 Account. Consequently, the volume has been restated from 6,512 ML (as published in the 2011 Account) to 6,618 ML as shown in the following table.
|Location||2012 Account volume for the 2010–11 year (ML)||2011 Account volume for the 2010–11 year (ML)|
|Bacchus Marsh Irrigation District||945||945|
|Bacchus Marsh Irrigation District supply by agreement||106||0
