What should I Expect to Pay for Irrigation Licensing Fees?

water did you know bubble.jpg

The agriculture irrigation rate is $0.85 per 1000 m3. The minimum charge for a water licence rental is $50 (equivalent to 58823 m3 or 47 acre feet).

The Ministry of Agriculture has compiled this reference table  showing some examples of fees for the agricultural irrigation rate. The table shows a variety of licence volumes and what those estimated fees will be.
