This site lists every approved water trade in the current water year (1 July to 30 June) for each of the prescribed areas in South Australia. The information is updated on a daily basis.

Annual summaries of water trading activities in the prescribed areas are generally provided for every year from 2000/2001.

The annual summaries for the years 2000/01 to 2003/04 are provided separately as these transactions were captured in the first water licensing system and did not differentiate between intra and interstate trades. The annual summaries from 2004/05 to the most recent year provide both intra and interstate trades.

To view the trade reports select an Area from the list under Water Trading in South Australia.
