Water Brokers Price Comparison

What you will find on this page is a comparison of prices for temporary allocation water among different water brokers.

So this page shows what price temp water is trading at across most water brokers, markets and exchanges.

You might also be interested in the Water Trading Opportunities Chart. It is a schematic of the rivers and channels which shows you where you can trade your water to and from. This is useful if you see a better price in a different trading zone on the price comparison tables.

Bid price is that which buyers are willing to pay and ask is that which sellers are asking to be paid.

Ruralco has a number of subsidary companies and possibly external companies that use the same systems, so the Ruralco Water price is the same as all of them. Their names include Ruralco Water, Rawlinson and Brown, Rawbrown, Breed and Hutchinson, B.R. & C. Agents, Rodwells and CRT.

H2OX, Planright, Peter Wilson and Integra Water Services Tatura haven’t got current water price information on their public websites. Not all brokers trade across the whole basin, some are just restricted to their local area or state.

$0 transfers appear in the above table because they are transfers within the one business. Another thing is there is a time delay between when a trade is contracted and when it is approved, so the market price might have moved in that time. Also, you might see transfers well outside of the spot market price because they are deliveries of forward contracts.

About the Aggregator

Every couple of hours a web scraper on the Water Broking World server views the webpage for each broker’s market and copies the prices, then displays it on this page. Sometimes the other broker’s page doesn’t load or there are no parcels for sale/sought/sold, which is why sometimes nothing appears in a cell.

Prices are before commission and transfer fees, so the actual amount paid or received will be different to the prices brokers have listed as the consideration.

Water Broking World makes no guarantee of the accuracy of this information. This feature is continuously in development, so check back regularly.
