Reports provide important insights into the changes in how water is owned, used and traded.
An updated report on water market trends in northern Victoria and facts sheets are now available, providing important insights into the changes in how water is owned, used and traded and the factors impacting the price of water on the market.
This is an update to the previous Water Market Trends report released in February 2016. It analyses data from the Victorian Water Register on trends in the northern Victorian water market since 2001. This new report includes additional information on the changes observed since 2014-15, and on trade patterns between different water users in recent seasons.
The report can be found here on the water register website. Other reports on water trading, including the Victorian Water Trading Annual Report are also available, along with up to date market data on the volume and price of water allocation trade on the water register website.
