Storage in Lake Victoria at 555 GL, to supply water to South Australia
Posted by waterweek on 19 September 2007
The water stored in Lake Victoria originated from tributary inflows during winter, particularly from the Ovens and Kiewa Rivers.
This will provide a signicant portion of South Australia’s water over the coming months and will reduce the demand on Hume and Dartmouth Reservoirs. The flow to South Australia has increased to 2000 ML/day and will remain at this level for the rest of the month (September).
