FULL allocations will be given to River Murray water users in SA to start the year.
Good inflows during the past three months and wet conditions have boosted Murray-Darling Basin storages to 94 per cent of their capacity, 27pc above the long term average for the end of June.
Private carryover will not be available in 2022-23 because the projected minimum opening allocation announced on April 14 was more than 50pc.
"I'm pleased that the state's water users will begin this water year with the security of a full allocation," Water Minister Susan Close said.
"Much of our state's prosperity and environmental sustainability comes from the River Murray which is why our government is committed to making the Murray a priority for SA again."
Despite recent rains, SA has only received 2 gigalitres of the 450GL promised under the Murray-Darling Basin Plan.
Ms Close said she was looking forward to working with the federal government to deliver the MDB Plan in full, including the delivery of the final 450GL.
