At the beginning of April WaterNSW applied the evaporation reduction for the carryover balances in the Macquarie and Cudgegong Rivers for the period ending 31 March 2016.
Carryover account balances in the Macquarie River will be applied with a reduction of 6.9% (of the carryover balance) and the Cudgegong River with 2.5%. This reduction represents a volume of about 510 ML in the Macquarie and 210 ML in the Cudgegong from 1 October 2015 to 31 March 2016. No evaporation reduction for carryover was applied for the period 1 July to 31 Sept. 2015 as it was negligible.
