WATER AND WASTEWATER CHARGES TO INCREASE FROM 1 JULY 2011

Here is a recent media statement released by Independent Competition and Regulatory Commission on 20/4/2011.  It makes for interesting reading.  Only an average of $142 increase per year doesn’t sound too bad, but as we know, it never stays static for long!

Photo supplied by Carlos PortosThe statement reads:

The Commission has decided that from 1 July 2011, water prices for the first 540 litres consumed per day will rise from $2 per kilolitre to $2.33 per kilolitre, and for all water consumed above 540 litres per day the rate will rise from $4.01 per kilolitre to $4.66 per kilolitre.


Wastewater charges will also increase from $516.11 to $555.39.


‘For an average household consuming 250 kilolitres of water per year, the total water and wastewater bill will increase by 11.73% in 2011–12, that is approximately $142 for the year’, Mr Baxter said.
