The Victorian Water Registrar has legal responsibility for the Water Register, which was implemented for northern Victorian regulated systems on 1 July 2007, and declared water systems in southern Victoria on 1 July 2008.
Register is the public
register of all water-related entitlements in Victoria. It records:
- who has been issued with water shares and the reliability, tenure, location and holding in megalitres (ML) for each water share
- how much water has been
allocated against water shares, how much has been used, and where it was
- registered interests in
water shares, such as mortgages and leases.
It also provides summary reports on volume of
water shares in each water system, annual allocation, use and the trading
history, including average prices for each water system.
