The Commission has released its final decision on Goulburn-Murray Water’s price submission for the period 1 July 2016 to 30 June 2020.
This completes the Commission’s review of the maximum prices that Goulburn-Murray Water may charge for irrigation and drainage, bulk storage, diversion services and miscellaneous services. The Commission’s final decision also covers tariff structures and service standards.
The Commission reviewed Goulburn-Murray Water’s price proposal under the Water Charge (Infrastructure) Rules (WCIR). The Commission applied to the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) for accreditation to regulate Goulburn-Murray Water’s regulated charges in 2012. The Commission was accredited for ten years from 17 February 2012. A condition of the accreditation was that the Commission apply pricing principles developed by the ACCC when approving regulated charges under the WCIR. A copy of the accreditation can be found here.
