Explanatory notes

The chart shows cumulative water availability to an average share of the selected water source and license category. This chart does not consider usages by account holders but only show the cumulative water that is 'brought to the table' by means of water allocations. There is potential data delays in entry of water restrictions to the database.

The impact on water balance is shown as an average figure across all licence holders within the selected category, on a per share basis. As an example, '+0.01' means that on average, water balance increases by 0.01ML per share across all licence holders within the selected category.
