The Victorian Water Trading Annual Report for 2014-15 is now available.

This report provides the definitive point for referencing Victorian water trade information and summarises all water trades recorded in the Victorian Water Register during 2014-15.  It presents information about the number, volume, price and location of trades for water shares, allocation, and groundwater and surface water take and use licences.

The total volume of allocation traded in 2014-15 was the highest annual volume on record. For the first time, this year’s report includes analysis to separate out the amount of allocation trade that can be identified as commercial from trades without a stated price. This is possible as we now have greater confidence in the reliability of price data because sellers in northern Victoria are now legally obliged under the Murray-Darling Basin Plan to provide true price data.

This is the eighth year that this report has been published. Copies of reports from previous years are available here.
