Carryover of unused water allocation from one water year to the next allows an irrigator certainty of supply. This ‘capacity’ to carryover water is very attractive to other irrigators and has a value to them. In recent years irrigators have paid for the use of someone else’s ‘carryover capacity’. 

Basically a fee per megalitre for use of the capacity has been paid and the buyer, by means of a temporary transfer, places their own or bought in water on to the licence. The water is returned to the buyer immediately in the new season. This transaction creates a certainty for the buyer that they will have that amount of water for use at the start of the new season at a known price. This type of water purchasing would be particularly advantageous when locking in to forward contracts. 

Pricing will reflect the price and availability of water at the time, risk associated as the holder or placer and the outlook for commodity prices.
