Our fees and charges are based on the User Pays system. This means if you have water and sewerage available to your property, you are charged a standard rate for the provision of these services on top of usage charges. Your account is generally made up of two types of charges:

  • Water Usage Charges
  • Water and Sewerage Service Charges

Usage charges are based on the volume of water used, measured by your property meter three times a year. Tenants are only responsible for water usage charges.

All our tariffs are set in accordance with the Essential Services Commission's determination of our 2018-2023 Water Plan.
