We reviewed expenditure and pricing proposals submitted by the four metropolitan Melbourne water businesses: City West Water, South East Water, Yarra Valley Water and Melbourne Water.
Metropolitan water price review 2009
The review covered the four year regulatory period commencing on 1 July 2009. Melbourne Water was included in this review in relation to its bulk water and sewerage services.
We completed our assessment of the businesses' proposals against the pricing principles in the Water Industry Regulatory Order (WIRO). We have approved the businesses' proposed prices or specified maximum prices, or the manner in which prices are to be determined, for the services provided by the businesses over the regulatory period.
We completed a review of the prices for and regional urban and rural services and Melbourne Water's drainage and waterways services in our water price review 2008.
