Key facts from our final decision
Prices will fall for most customers from July 2020
Prices will fall for most customers with services improving in some key areas.
We approved revenue of $440 million over the four year period starting 1 July 2020. This is around $65 million lower than we approved for the previous four year period.
A common water delivery charge across its six irrigation districts
Six gravity irrigation districts will have a common delivery charge.
This reflects that costs in each district are increasingly similar and allows for administrative savings.
All retail customers to pay water storage fees based on system charges
Storage fees for all retail water customers will be based on a systems wide approach.
Previously, non-water users were charged a ‘basin’ specific price, and water users were charged the ‘system’ price. This change reflects the common service they receive.
