Description

The often sporadic water flows throughout the Murray-Darling Basin have seen the implementation of man-made barriers such as weirs and dams to help control the flows. This, teamed with an increased use of the river - particularly for agricultural purposes - has warranted the need for water allocations along the basin and its tributaries. Water allocations are given to those who possess water access entitlements per season and allow the holder to use a specified volume of water.
