Department of Primary Industies and Environment – Water has announced a limited period of access to supplementary water for the Murrumbidgee River and Yanco/Billabong Creek systems. This follows rainfall over some parts of tributary catchments especially around Tumut River. However, the available volume is small and access will therefore be limited to ensure all interested customers have the opportunity for access. Please refer to page 2 for supplementary access details and dates. In addition, all 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 place a complying water order using one of the following options: • Accessing WWW.WaterNSW.com.au and logging on to your iWAS account. • Faxing your order to 1300 871 447 • Emailing your order to email@example.com • Telephoning your order to 1300 662 077 During business hours (Water order forms are available from the Water NSW web site) http://www.waternsw.com.au/__data/assets/pdf_file/0017/121256/Water-Order-Form_S-withemail.pdf Customers are reminded that with the conclusion of supplementary access, regulated flow conditions would resume and water orders must be placed in accordance with their licence conditions with consideration for lead order times. WaterNSW will continue to monitor the situation closely and further advice will be issued only if required, on or before Tuesday 5 May 2020. For further information contact the Operations Officer, WaterNSW Southern Valleys on 1300 662 077 during business hours.
