Water situation report

The water situation (or Watsit) report is a report we produce to oversee our water resources. It includes a summary of all the major sources of the water we draw on to make sure your taps stay full of water 24 hours a day.

Frothly Surface

Data such as daily rainfall, regional reservoir stocks, river levels and demand is monitored and you can see our current position against historical and seasonal trends and fluctuations.

The majority of the figures are produced either as a % of total capacity (in the case of reservoir stocks) or as Ml/d which is megalitres per day. 1 megalitre is equivalent to 1 million litres.

Here's a summary of the Watsit report data:
