Changes to our prices for 2017–18
Each year, our prices are reviewed and set by the State Government, as part of the State Budget process. In making its decision, the State Government considers the cost to provide water, wastewater and drainage service and the impact any changes will have on you, our customers.
From 1 July 2017, water use and service charges will increase by 6% on average.
Changes to seniors discounts

The total discount you receive will depend on the service provided to your property and your entitlement.
