Water Pricing Review

Water Pricing Review (Irrigation Water)

The Queensland Competition Authority (QCA) has commenced its investigation into water prices to apply to SunWater’s irrigation customers from 1 July 2020 to 30 June 2024. The irrigation price review allows for a thorough examination of our costs and provides an opportunity for stakeholders to present their views on issues affecting them before the QCA recommends future irrigation water prices to the Queensland Government.

To assist the QCA in its review, we have developed a submission that details the costs of providing services to irrigation customers and the revenues we require to recover these costs. Our submission has been developed in consultation with customer representatives.

SunWater submitted our submission (below) to the QCA on 6 November 2018.
