Supplementary notes

Note: Distributed water includes water supplied to a user through a natural (e.g. river) or non-natural network (piped/open channel or other carrier) where an economic transaction has occurred for the exchange of water regardless of method of delivery. It also includes water supplied to the environment as 'Environmental flows'. Distributed water is a subset of the self-extracted total.
Reuse water refers to drainage, waste or storm water which may have been treated to some extent and supplied for use.

Australia's financial year runs from July to June; for example, FY 2017 started in July 2016 and ended in June 2017
