Current Water Ownership

Last updated: 25 May 2018

NOTE: The Current Water Ownership tables will be updated on Tuesday 17 July 2018 as carryover and trade data for 2017/18 and 2018/19 are finalised. We apologise for the inconvenience.

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 and return flow volumes
  • Volumes of operational use by Goulburn-Murray Water private water share holders
