Projected Opening water allocations have risen to 22 per cent following infomation released by the Department for Environment and Water yesterday.

Minister for Environment and Water David Speirs said that the improvement is better news for South Australian River Murray water entitlement holders.

Department for Environment and Water River Murray Water Operations Manager Jarrod Eaton said that the change to the minimum opening allocation is based on advice from the Murray-Darling Basin Authority and reflects recent rainfall and updated water availability conditions.

Mr Eaton also said “The Bureau of Meteorology’s outlook across the Murray-Darling Basin shows there is no strong indication either way towards a wetter or drier than average three months ahead.
