Murrumbidgee Supplementary Announcement – 3rd November

Department of Planning, Industry & Environment – Water has issued access to supplementary water for the Murrumbidgee River and Yanco/Billabong Creek systems.
Recent rainfall from coastal low event has led to elevated tributary inflows.
In addition, regulated river (general security) access licence holders may take water during this period of supplementary flows, if the uncontrolled flow (UCF) limits of their accounts permit. Licence holders are reminded that all diversions count towards the annual usage limit of 100% of entitlement (excludes trades into accounts).
Customers wishing to access supplementary water / uncontrolled flow must provide a START meter reading and place a complying water order using one of the following options:
 Accessing WWW.WaterNSW.com.au and registering or logging on to your iWAS account.
 Faxing your order to 1300 871 447
 Emailing your order to south.orders@waternsw.com.au
 Telephoning your order to 1300 662 077 During business hours
Water order forms are available from the Water NSW web site.
Customers are reminded that with the conclusion of supplementary access an END meter reading must be provided, and as regulated flow conditions would resume water orders must be placed in accordance with their licence conditions.
WaterNSW will continue to monitor the situation closely and further advice will be issued only if required, on or before Tuesday 3 November 2020.
For further information contact the Operations Officer, WaterNSW Southern Valleys on 1300 662 077 during business hours.
