This data reflects the reservoir levels as of 8am ACST and is uploaded to this page at approximately 12pm ACST each weekday.
Our reservoirs are the state’s primary water storage areas, supplying homes and businesses across South Australia. The reservoirs don't just fill with rain, we can also use them as storage for River Murray water in times of high demand.
At full capacity, our reservoirs can hold almost 200,000 megalitres of water - just under a year's supply for metropolitan Adelaide.
