Southern Rural Water covers an area of 88,000 km2, or 37% of the state. To find out if your property is in Southern Rural Water’s area, visit the water in your region web page. A seasonal allocation tells irrigators what percentage of their high and low reliability water shares they can use for the season. It reflects how much water is actually available in storage.

Southern Rural Water is responsible for 7 storages in its region, together with a number of smaller regulating structures. From these storages we harvest and store water for irrigation customers, urban water corporations and the Latrobe Valley Power generators in accordance with the provisions of Bulk Entitlement Orders.
