Page 11: WaterNSW Water Operations Report · • Fluctuations in river flows due to investigation works for reinstating Cold Water Pollution temperature curtain. Weirs • Planned outage –none.

Inflows are consistent with rainfall

over the past 6 month period. Actual

inflows for last 6 months were only

22 GL which is nearly equal to 99th

percentile inflows.

Inflows are consistent with rainfall over the past 12 months. Actual inflows for the last12 months were around 168GL. Most of the inflows were up to end of April17 and the percentile was equal to 50% condition. However, from May 17 the condition were drier and only 22GL of inflows were recorded. The cumulative inflows turned out to be less than than 80th percentile for rest of the year.

Inflows are consistent with rainfall

over the past 6 months. Actual

inflows for the last 6 months were

around 200ML which is equal to 99%

inflow conditions.

Dry condition throughout has

resulted in very less inflows into

Windamere dam. Over the past 12

month period the actual inflow were

only 4.5 GL which is just better than

99% inflow conditions.

Operational Loss

Operational loss is water above that which could reasonably be expected to pass the

last extraction point on each given river/creek being supplied with regulated flow

(dam releases and controlled tributary inflows – not supplementary flows)
