14.1 Adjustment and forfeiture of groundwater allocation
The volume reported (23,515 ML) represents the volume of unused allocated groundwater that was not permitted to be carried over at 30 June 2013 and was therefore forfeited. Carry-over of unused allocations is subject to rules detailed in the relevant water allocation plans.
The volume of water forfeited at the end of the 2012–13 year was calculated as summarised in the table below.
|6.1 Groundwater allocation remaining (at 1 July 2012)||6,641|
|22.1 Groundwater allocation announcements||48,343|
|18.11 Entitled extraction of allocated groundwater to users||(27,528)|
|6.1 Groundwater allocation remaining (at 30 June 2013)||(3,941)|
|14.1 Adjustment and forfeiture of groundwater allocation||23,515|
