OPSIM Version 8 (beta) is currently undergoing field trials on Meander Dam in Tasmania. The trials are being conducted in partnership with Entura and provide users with real-time access of dam inventories, both current and forecasts. On-line inventory forecasts are provided for both the short-term (utilizing the BOM Australian Digital Forecast Database) and seasonal outlooks (using long-term historical records of rainfall). Entura's Ajenti cloud-based database web portal is used to view historical and forecast information.
OPSIM and Entura both gratefully acknowledge the support offered by Tasmanian Irrigation in undertaking this trial.
