Community panel convened

Ever wondered how Barwon Water sets prices for water and sewerage services?

This weekend provides a chance to understand the process, with the corporation inviting customers and the wider community to register as observers as a Community Panel meets to help shape future water prices.

Convened as part of Barwon Water’s 2018 Pricing Submission process, the panel of 30 randomly selected customers will come together on Saturday and Sunday to consider the questions: “what do you value most about your water and sewerage services and what do you expect in the future”.

The 2018 Price Submission will provide the basis for the Essential Services Commission to set the maximum prices that can be charged for the five-year regulatory period commencing 1 July 2018.

Following this weekend’s meeting, the panel would come together for a final session to prepare a report for the Barwon Water Board containing its recommendations on prices.

Observers are welcome at Saturday and Sundays panel meetings. If you’re interested, please register online.
