*Return flows and trade is used as a mechanism to account for environmental water deliveries from the Murray, Goulburn and other tributaries to South Australia. Due to long travel times to South Australia there can be delays in the traded volumes corresponding to return flows and used volumes. Because of these delays the environmental trade and recredit volumes are displayed here are estimated figures.

^The volume of water used includes water that has been used that has been sourced from other systems by tagged use.
