Water rates

Water rates help to pay for water collection and treatment facilities, our water distribution network and water conservation measures.

How is water usage tracked?

Almost all properties in Council’s boundaries are charged for water by meter. Meters encourage a responsible attitude to water use and mean fair sharing of the cost of water supply, those who use less pay less. Reducing the demand for water has a big impact on how much money needs to be spent on treatment plants, pipes and reservoirs.

How are water rates charges calculated?

All water used is charged for at a volumetric rate of $2.14 per cubic metre (1000 litres) including GST. There is also a base charge of $31.50 for all standard domestic customers. Non-standard and non-domestic connections are charged a base rate depending on the size of the meter.
