Prices down for 2015/2016

Barwon Water’s water, sewerage and recycled water prices for customers for the 2015/2016 financial year have been approved and apply from today. The prices are in line with the 2013–2018 Water Plan, which focuses on easing cost-of-living pressures on the community.

The independent Essential Services Commission has approved a price decrease of 7.6% over the life of the Water Plan (1.6% each year), excluding inflation.

Once CPI of 1.33% is applied, customer prices will decrease by 0.30% for the 2015/2016 financial year.

A further decrease of $0.24 will apply to the quarterly sewerage service charge as a result of savings associated with the Carbon Tax repeal in 2014.

For an average residential customer using 160 kilolitres of water a year, this translates into a decrease of around $4.15 annually. Bills vary depending on usage.
