South central urban water market trial: review and foundations

Rebecca Nelson, Darren Sinclair, Erin O'Donnell, Cameron Holley

Research output: Book/ReportReports

Abstract

This report draws on existing literature to develop an understanding of the conditions under which a market would be an effective tool for sharing bulk urban water, and based on this, the implications for the outcomes of a water market for sharing water across the south central region. It seeks to answer the following key questions:

• Do the current arrangements for supplying and delivering water in the south central region provide the necessary pre-conditions for effective water sharing using a bulk urban water market?
• What are the implications for using a bulk urban water market to share water across the south central region?

Future components of this work will address comparative experiences of bulk urban water markets, and analyse how a bulk urban water market would interact with the current pricing and regulatory framework for urban water in the south central region.
