This paper is concerned with the distributive consequences of alternative methods of allocating transferable water licenses in Queensland, Australia. The equilibrium of a number of different cooperative games will be used to judge which method of initial allocation of water entitlements potentially produces the most equitable distribution of the income derived from regulated water.
