Water Markets Product Information

There are a large number of actively traded water access rights throughout the Basin. These rights all have different characteristics including priority, reliability and form of take.

Under the Basin Plan water trading rules, we now collect from Basin states information on the most actively traded regulated water market products. We do not collect information about unregulated products and groundwater products.

Information on approximately 70 regulated water market products is now available.

Additional information on these products are directly available from the relevant Basin State.
