11.15 Increase of inter-region claim on water by urban water system
On 1 July 2012, the South Australian Minister for Sustainability, Environment and Conservation announced that the volume of water available for abstraction under the Class 6 water access entitlement (WAE) to River Murray water for the 2012–13 year was 130,000 ML.
More information on the entitlement can be found at line item 3.4 Urban inter-region claim on water.

The South Australian Minister for Sustainability, Environment and Conservation announced a 100% allocation of 1 kL/unit share for the Class 6 WAE. Based on this allocation rate and the number of Class 6 shares held, the volume of water reported was 130,000 ML. This data was obtained from the WILMA database.
Assumptions, limitations, caveats and approximations
The Class 6 WAE is represented as a claim held on behalf of the Adelaide region; however, a proportion of the water abstracted under this claim services users outside the boundary of the Adelaide region.
The uncertainty estimate was not quantified.
