Forward Water Sale

Murrumbidgee Irrigation is pleased to offer water allocation to our customers as a forward water sale.

We are able to provide this opportunity to our customers due to an unusual year with a very high level of local rainfall, coupled with changes to our operational practices. 

The water is being offered at a discounted forward sale price of $75/ML but will be limited to 5% of customers' delivery entitlements.  

By making this water available to Delivery Entitlement holders, those that fund the system year in year out have the opportunity to make use of the system savings. All customers ultimately benefit from the revenue these opportunities create. Murrumbidgee Irrigation aims to deliver water at the best possible price.  This is a further benefit, in addition to the usual enhancement, to customers who hold DE’s.   

Opportunities like this help our customers to plan for the new season and also add revenue to the business - helping to keep price increases down. 

The forward water sale opens to MI customers on 10 May 2017.  (Closing date extended to 23 June 2017).

To take advantage of this offer, call us on 6962 0200 or email and we will send you a sale pack.
