How is evaporation, seepage and wind action accounted for?

Evaporation, seepage etc was considered in the original catchment modelling that was used to determine allocations/entitlements. In addition, the storage meters record hourly (and report daily) and any significant trends will be identified. It is important to acknowledge that the total amount of water extracted is measured. The landowner may store water for months and this will impact the final water available for use.
