Murrumbidgee general security allocation has increased by 3 per cent of entitlement to be now 23 per cent of entitlement for the 2017-18 water year.

This small improvement is due to inflows to the upper storages produced by rainfall during last week.

This assessment is based on finalised average carryover figures, some 27 per cent of entitlement, meaning that overall general security water availability is 50 per cent of entitlement.
