Water trading – leasing

If you need more water – or have spare water – you can seek to buy and sell (or trade, lease or temporarily transfer) water from other SRW customers in your irrigation district, system or zone.

While our online forum Watermatch is undergoing redevelopment,  you can use the relevant (closed) Facebook group to help you find someone who wants to buy or sell water.

If you need to check the trade is able to proceed, please contact our Customer Service team on 1300 139 510.

Please note: SRW is not acting as a water broker, and we can’t advise you on pricing.

When you have found a trade, we can help you with the next steps in completing the process.

See below for the application forms and fees.

There are also several opportunities during the season to purchase seasonal water at our online auctions, where bidding is managed through WaterBid.
