What’s this about?

The Independent Pricing and Regulatory Tribunal's (IPART) draft reports on rural bulk water prices and water management prices support the long term security and reliability of water supply in regional and rural NSW.

The reports set out IPART’s draft decisions on the maximum prices that Water NSW and the Water Administration Ministerial Corporation (WAMC) can charge for services.

The draft prices would be in place for the next four years. IPART is seeking community feedback on the proposed price increases. 

Price increases are needed to provide a sustainable water supply in regional areas, which are particularly vulnerable to the impact of climate change.

The price increases will enable Water NSW and WAMC to improve performance so dams and other infrastructure are adequately maintained.
