A change to the location of a water allocation is possible between zones.

If the change can be made within the maximum and minimum constraints set by the trading rules then the change will generally be approved.

HIGH priority water allocations (ML)

* This represents the forecasted ‘current volume’ assuming all outstanding dealing certificates or matters under review are registered on the water allocations register.

A combined maximum or minimum volume for two or more zones means the total current volume for all those zones, when added together, must not breach that maximum or minimum figure. For example, if two zones have a combined maximum volume of 1,000ML then the current volume of both zones must always be at or below 1,000ML.

Some zones will also have individually specified maximum or minimum volumes as well as a combined maximum or minimum volume. For example, if Zone 1 and Zone 2 specify a maximum volume of 800ML and 950ML respectively, then the current volume for each zone must not exceed the volume specified for the zone value. If both these zones also have a combined maximum volume of 1,500ML then the current volume of both zones combined must not exceed 1,500ML.
