While the VEWH does not hold any entitlements in the Maribyrnong system, water allocation was purchased in this system together with Melbourne Water in all years between 2013–14 and 2018–19 inclusive.
Use of these entitlements depends on suitable river heights, as specified in both the Latrobe and Barwon environmental entitlements (rather than a permitted volume).
Water is accumulated continuously according to a share of inflows (Blue Rock Reservoir 9.5 percent, Tarago Reservoir 10.3 percent, Werribee system 10.0 percent, Moorabool system 11.9 percent, Thomson Reservoir 3.9 percent, West Barwon Reservoir 3.8 percent). The actual volume available in any year varies according to inflows. Entitlement volumes presented in this table indicate the entitlement share of storage.
In addition to volumetric entitlement, the entitlement also includes passing flows.
In addition to volumetric entitlement, the entitlement also includes unregulated water.
This entitlement volume is the mitigation water savings from the Goulburn-Murray Water Connections Project Stage 1, as verified in the latest audit.
Allocation against this entitlement is made subject to specific triggers, as specified in the entitlement.
