Water markets can be structured to address these fundamental characteristics of water in order to create a fairly secure and flexible system of water use. Of course, it is not realistic to expect institutions to correct for every potential market failure; indeed, perfect markets rarely exist. For example, markets cannot entirely eliminate uncertainty nor is complete certainty necessary. The certainty and flexibility created by market institutions must simply be sufficient, rather than ideal, in order to be effective.

For example, some localities in Australia use the concept of "capacity sharing" to reduce uncertainty (Dudley, 1991). Share holders in a dam project receive a certain percentage of dam capacity and stream flow. While the percentage is constant, the actual quantity of water received will vary from year to year. In this way, the structure of water rights spreads the risk of variability equally among share holders. Drought year water allocation in Valencia, Spain, is representative of many privately organized water distribution systems.
