    Description:
    Sufficient resources are available to announce a new allocation of 56 per cent of entitlement to general security licence holders in the Macquarie and Cudgegong valleys.

    This is in addition to the previous allocations announced in July, bringing the total for the 2016/17 water year to 77 per cent of entitlement.

    Persistent and widespread rainfall in the Central West has produced approximately 450,000 megalitres (ML) of inflow to Burrendong Dam in July and a further 140,000 ML is anticipated in August, based on flows already in the system.
