Forward Water is the sale or purchase of a specific volume of water at an agreed price for temporary transfer to the buyer in the next water year or for an agreed number of water years. 

This ‘forward’ sale of water gives the seller certainty of the number of megalitres he has to have available for temporary transfer and the price he will receive. The buyer can plan his irrigation cropping program and budgets, knowing the price he will need to pay. 

This water product removes the price uncertainty for both buyer and seller. It may be that a buyer will pay a premium for forward water as it eliminates both price and supply uncertainty.
