2016 price review

Our Water plan sets out the water, sewerage, waterways, drainage and recycled water projects needed to support Melbourne's growing population, as well as the cost of these projects and the prices we intend to charge our customers.

In June 2016, the ESC released its final determination on our proposed prices and services standards for 2016/17 to 2021. A copy of the ESC's final determination can be found on their website.

The new prices took effect on 1 July 2016 and are updated annually.  For specific customer pricing information, visit our Customers and prices section.

It's important to note that the prices for our wholesale water and sewerage services are different to the prices water consumers see on their water bills. Those prices are set by the retail water companies taking into account the wholesale cost of services as well as their planned capital works and other investments. The water retail businesses have their own water plans.
