Yarra Valley Water outcomes reporting

What are outcomes?
Water businesses are accountable to their customers for delivering the outcomes set out in their price submissions, under our new PREMO water pricing framework. Each business is required to report at least annually to its customers on:
- it's performance against the specified measures and targets for each outcome
- an overall assessment of whether it has delivered on expectations for each outcome, including the business’s explanation for any performance shortfalls and how it intends to address them.
We have requested businesses also provide us with a summary outcome report document using a standard template. These summary outcome reports are all published together on our website. For the 2020-21 reporting year, each water business has reported its actual performance against its targets on each measure, outcome, and provided an overall rating. The self-assessments use a simple “traffic light” rating:
- green = achieved target
- amber = mostly achieved target
- red = failed to achieve target.
Each business has also provided comments on its performance overall and on each outcome.

Yarra Valley Water's self-assessment against outcomes in 2020–21
|Safe drinking water|
|Reliable water and sewerage services|
|Timely response and restoration|
|Fair access and assistance for all|
|Water availability and conservation|
|Modern flexible service|
|Care for and protect the environment|
Yarra Valley Water’s self-assessment was reasonable and its performance was strong. For falling just short on two of its outcome commitments it will compensate customers $3 million through rebates next year. This level of accountability for underperformance stands out compared to the other businesses.
It also showed ownership for its performance results by sharing them promptly and prominently on its website homepage.
