17.14 Surface water transfer under inter–region commitment
The volume presented in the water accounting statements (3,040 ML) represents the volume of water diverted under the Tarago River – Gippsland Water Bulk Entitlement, as shown in the following table.
|Labertouche Creek at Labertouche Weir||0|
|Pederson Weir / Westernport Pipeline||2,819|
|Tarago Reservoir (Neerim South)||221|
The volume of surface water diverted under the bulk entitlement is reported in the Gippsland Water Annual Report 2011–12. A portion of the volume diverted by Gippsland Water under this bulk entitlement is supplied by Melbourne Water as they manage the Tarago Reservoir. This volume is published in the Melbourne Water Annual Report 2011–12.
In the 2012 Account, this omission was corrected and all surface water diversions under the Tarago River – Gippsland Water bulk entitlement were reported. Consequently, the volume has been restated from 235 ML (as published in the 2011 Account) to 3,168 ML.
