Request for information on water market services

Summary of submissions on the request for information from water market intermediaries

Seven submissions were received on the request for information from water market intermediaries. Most water market intermediaries were supportive of trading by Commonwealth Environmental Water Office (the Office), but expressed concerns about potential market impacts.

Around half of water market intermediaries indicated an ability to meet the special requirements the Office may have, but did not provide details on how they would do this.

As the process of developing trading arrangements is ongoing, we welcome feedback, both formal and informal, on trading arrangements at any stage. Feedback can be sent to:, or by mail to the following address:
