Inter-Valley Trade accounts (IVT) reflects the net balance of surface water volume that has been temporary traded or tagged traded out of a particular water source at any point in time. All categories of licence permitted to trade can affect the IVT balance. 

These IVT's are in place for numerous reasons, including:

  • Preservation of the Environment
  • Keeping enough water in particular rivers and valleys
  • Reducing unseasonal high flows

The main inter-valley trade restrictions are between:

  • The Murrumbidgee and Murray River (Murrumbidgee IVT)
  • The Barmah Choke, in the Barmah-Millewa Forest (Barmah Choke IVT)
  • The Goulburn to Murray River (Goulburn IVT)
  • The Lower Darling to Murray River (Lower Darling IVT)
