Prices down for 2016/2017

Barwon Water’s water, sewerage and recycled water prices for customers for the 2016/2017 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 1.31% is applied, customer prices will decrease by 0.31% for the 2016/2017 financial year.

For an average residential customer using 160 kilolitres of water a year, this equates to a decrease of around $3.38 annually. Bills vary depending on usage.

A Victorian Government water rebate of $90 also will apply to residential customers whose bills include a water usage component. The rebate applies in the first quarter of the financial year (July to September) and reflects continued efforts to improve customer affordability.
