How we set prices and service levels

Every 5years all water businesses undergo a price review run by the water industry’s independent regulator, the Essential Services Commission. (ESC). We’ve started planning for our next price submission - the services we'll provide and the prices customers pay, in the 5years from 1 July 2023 to 30 June 2028.

We've engaged with customers, the community and stakeholders since early 2021 to find out what matters to them about their water and sewerage services. These insights and feedback have shaped and informed our plan for these 5  years. We've submitting our plan to the ESC and received preliminary approval.

How we view sustainability

We take a big picture approach to providing our services, to achieve the best result for our community and planet.

We were the first water corporation in Australia to commit to the United Nations Global Compact and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). This is a set of 17 global goals describing what a prosperous yet sustainable world looks like. We are contributing to the SDGs through every aspect of our business, from human resources to customer hardship to where we source our energy.
