The annual auction of permanent water shares in the Macalister Irrigation District (MID) will be conducted online on Friday 3 April 2020 from 10am.

The social distancing measures required under coronavirus (COVID-19) has led to the auction changing format to online, instead of the usual in-person event. Online auctions through the WaterBid system have been held successfully in the MID in previous years for seasonal water.

There will be 15 Lots of varying sizes, made up of the following:

  • 48.5 ML of high reliability and low reliability water shares bundled, with allocation.
  • 92.8 ML of high reliability water shares only, with allocation

Potential eligible bidders must register with WaterBid at by 3pm on Thursday 2 April, the day prior to the auction commencing.

The water shares have been created through water savings achieved with modernisation projects in the MID.

If you need help registering, or would like further information about the auction, please contact Sarah Bishop, Gavin Prior or our Customer Service team on 1300 139 510.
