From 1 July 2023 your water and sewerage prices will have increased with typical household water and sewerage bills going up by about 5.9%.
There's a lot that goes into delivering essential water and sewerage services that protect public health and enable liveable communities. The cost of doing so has increased, and we're balancing this with the need to keep bills as low as possible.
Like all businesses, the costs to deliver our services have gone up. Increases will cover the rising costs of operating, maintaining and growing the water and sewerage networks, a local customer contact centre, providing 24/7 fault response, and treating and recycling water.
We're future-proofing our infrastructure
We are investing $1.8 billion over the next five years to to expand and renew our extensive network of pipes, pumps and plants across Moreton Bay, the Sunshine Coast and Noosa. This will cater for population growth and maintaining safe and reliable water services for all customers.
