The total water storage in Adelaide's reservoirs at the end of December 2009 was 77% of capacity, compared to 73% at the same time in 2008. According to SA Water, in 2009 Adelaide consumed 137.4 gigalitres (GL) of water. Although this is slightly higher than consumption for 2008, water consumption continues to be below the target for enhanced level three water restrictions. Over the course of 2009 approximately 125GL of rainfall entered Adelaide's reservoirs, with 50GL of this received via good spring rainfalls. As a result only 36GL of water was pumped from the River Murray to supplement supply in 2009, compared with 97GL pumped in 2008.
