Water industry

A healthy economy is vital to South Australia’s future and can only be achieved by ensuring industries have access to a reliable water supply.

We give water users the confidence to make long-term investment decisions by determining sustainable water allocations across 27 water resource areas and managing a system of tradeable water licences.

There is around $2.8 billion worth of water managed across 14,000 active, tradeable licences in South Australia. These licences allow equitable and controlled access to water for industries including irrigated agriculture, manufacturing, mining and petroleum as well as stock and domestic use.
