Source: 3-monthly rainfall anomalies for South Australia, Australian Bureau of Meteorology
According to the Bureau of Meteorology, rainfall across most of the agricultural districts was below average in October 2009. However, due to the location of South Australian reservoirs, storage capacity is heavily reliant upon rainfall in the Mount Lofty catchment (SA Water). With Forreston (Millers Creek) receiving 92.6mm of rain during October and several other areas within the Mount Lofty catchment area receiving more than 50mm, total water storage reached 92% of capacity by the end of the month. This was substantially more than the volumes of water held in October of the previous 2 years.
