It is the sixth consecutive year that we have frozen water and sewerage usage charges, part of our ongoing commitment to keep costs as low as possible. 

We’ve also frozen prices for our non-residential and trade waste customers to help local businesses during this challenging time.

Waiving access charges would impact our services for our customers. It would also cost millions of dollars, with job losses and cuts to our infrastructure programs which ensure we continue to provide reliable and safe services.
We encourage everyone to be water efficient and you can turn the tap off while scrubbing and rubbing your hands to save water. If you run a tap for five minutes it costs about 30 cents - so a lot less than that for each hand wash. We think that's a pretty small price to pay for your health!

No interest has been applied to accounts from 2 April 2020 until 1 July 2021. Interest that was applied to your account prior to 2 April 2020 is still payable.
