News The Price of Water: Development, Situation and Trends [2013-2018]

The Water Plan (2013–2018) is a 5-year business plan of Barwon Water, and outlines:

  • the prices our customers will pay
  • our capital and operational spending
  • the service standards we provide to our customers, and
  • how we will meet our obligations.

The 2013 Water Plan has been developed by Barwon Water with input from our customers and stakeholders.

The final 2013 was submitted to the Essential Services Commission — the independent regulator of the water industry — for final approval on 28 September 2012.

What the 2013 Water Plan means for you

Under the 2013 Water Plan we are proposing no increase to our water and sewerage prices (excluding CPI) over the next 5 years while maintaining the same high level of customer service that our customers have come to expect.

Barwon Water is moving from a period of significant investment in securing Geelong's water supply to a new phase focussed on efficient delivery of quality services.

After 5 years of 'double-digit' price increases, we are conscious of cost of living pressures. We are committed to customer affordability and minimising price rises for our customers.
