The 100 per cent rule is used to regulate carryover in the smaller Broken, Loddon and Bullarook systems. It prevents individuals from using more storage capacity than they are entitled to by limiting an individual's carryover plus allocations to 100% of their entitlement volume. Therefore, the volume of allocation made to the water share in the next season may be restricted if you decide to carry over.
In these systems, carryover is also regulated by the 50 per cent rule where entitlement holders can only carry over up to 50% of the volume of their high- and low-reliablity water shares.
