To better protect the Deutgam aquifer and give you more groundwater security, Southern Rural Water introduced new groundwater allocation rules for the Deutgam aquifer last season.
The opening (and minimum) groundwater allocation with Deutgam WSPA for this irrigation season (from 1 July 2016) is 25%. The 25% allocation applies to both permanent and traded groundwater.
Depending on conditions later in the season, the allocation may increase but will not decrease.
