This fact sheet explains how carryover and spillable water work on the Murray, Goulburn and Campaspe systems.
The spill rule for carryover on the Murray system is changing for season 2013-14.
A limit on carryover will apply so that entitlement holders cannot carry over more than their full water share volume.
Murray, Goulburn and Campaspe water entitlement holders can elect not to carry over some or all of their unused allocation into 2013-14 and future seasons by returning it to the pool of water for new allocations.
Water users will always be charged when they carry over and store more water than their entitlement in the dams.
This fact sheet explains what a low-risk-of-spill declaration means for your spillable water.
New controls on allocation trade to the Victorian Murray and between states are being implemented to avoid sudden trade suspensions.
From next season less water will be set aside in early reserves to reflect the delivery efficiencies achieved through the Goulburn-Murray Water Connections Project.
New arrangements for the Murray reserve policy are being brought in for season 2013.
