5.1 Surface water allocation remaining
Carrover of unused water allocated for high-reliability and low-reliability water shares in the Werribee and Bacchus Marsh irrigation districts is not permitted. The volume reported in the water accounting statements is zero.
According to Southern Rural Water's Werribee and Bacchus Marsh allocation method, any unused allocation at the end of the season (30 June) will be part of the resource available for opening allocation at the start of the following season (1 July).
The surface water allocation remaining was calculated as shown in the following table.
|Opening balance (30 June 2011)||0|
|add||21.1 Surface water allocation announcements||20,761|
|less||17.11 Entitled diversion of allocated surface water to users||10,125|
|less||13.1 Adjustment and forfeiture of surface water allocation||10,636|
|Closing balance (30 June 2012)||0|
Details of the allocation model are available on the Southern Rural Water website.
Assumptions, limitations, caveats and approximations
In the 2011 Account, it was incorrectly reported that carryover of water allocated under high reliability and low reliability water shares in the Werribee and Bacchus Marsh irrigation districts was permitted.
In the 2012 Account, this error was corrected. Consequently the volume has been restated from 13,946 ML (as reported in the 2011 Account) to 0 ML.
