Who We Are
Integra Water Services is a locally owned and operated business based in the hub of Tatura’s water businesses.
Liz Johnston is the founder and operator of the business which has been operating now for over 9 years. Having worked in the Water industry since 2000, Liz decided to branch out into her own business in 2005 to provide water brokering and water advice for customers who wanted a greater depth of knowledge and understanding of their water assets so they could make well informed decisions.
Integra has continued to grow over the years, our first clients – both large and small operators – are still our clients today. Customers value the time we take to discuss their water needs and requirements and to personalize the transactions specific to their needs. Our existing customers are our greatest source of new business – referring clients to us.
A great team of staff, good systems, passion and extensive knowledge of the industry has all contributed to Integra being a major player in the Water Broking industry today.
Liz started in the Water Industry in May 2000, when water was listed as part of a land sale transaction. It was also the time when the Managed Investment Schemes came into the market and started acquiring water entitlments. Over this period of time, Liz has assisted a wide range of clients in buying or selling water and assisting them to better understand their own water entitlements.
With the unbundling of land and water due to happen in July 2006, Liz knew that water entitlement holders would be looking for more advice and more options than simply trading water.
This culminated in Liz establishing Integra Water Services which is now in it’s 10th year of operation. Liz’s has a wealth of knowledgle in all areas of water shares, allocation, systems and trading rules and is an integral part of the business. Whether it is dealing direct with clients or by training her staff, Liz passes this knowledge and understanding on to others that operate in the water industry in the effort to better educate people to make better choices.
