After a wet few months and with storages across much of the Basin nearing capacity, many water users are looking forward to strong allocations and a good season ahead.

In the River Murray system, the MDBA is responsible for calculating how much water belongs to New South Wales, Victoria and South Australia. But did you know that state governments are responsible for allocating water to irrigators and other water users, and the arrangements are different in each state and across licence types? Have you ever wondered how allocations are calculated and why they vary across catchments and over time? 

At our next webinar, join experts in river management, river operations and hydrology from the MDBA and Basin state governments to learn more about water resource availability and the processes and factors that influence allocation decision making.
