Last updated: 19 September 2018

NOTE: The Current Water Ownership tables will be updated on Tuesday 2 October 2018.

Please note that the information published in these tables will vary from the information published on the Victorian Water Register website as it includes:

  • Preliminary environmental water holder use, return flow and trade volumes
  • Volumes of operational use by Goulburn-Murray Water private water share holders
