Short Term Supply

Short Term Supply

Short term supply is the provision of small volumes of water on a temporary, one-off basis to facilitate activities such as road construction.

Customers seeking access to volumes of water exceeding three to four megalitres, or any volume of water on an ongoing basis, should contact Sunwater’s water broker.

Details about water trading and contact details for the broker are available on the Water Trading page.

To apply for a short term supply arrangement see the following steps:

Step 1 – You supply us with the required details

Step 2 – We assess the Application and the availability of the proposed volume (Note: if you require an off-take to be installed to take the water we will need 6 weeks notice)

Step 3 – If the water is available we will send you a partially completed Application Form for your attention

Step 4 – You send us the completed Application Form and a Purchase Order number

Step 5 – We will send you an invoice payable within 7 days and Approval to take the water

Step 6 – You pay invoice (If not paid within 7 days than Approval to Take will be withdrawn until paid in full)

Note: The Short Term Supply term can only be until the end of the current water year. If the requirement is for a longer period then another application will need to be lodged at the beginning of the next water year once the announced allocation has been approved and the water available is known.
