WUA MidCo - Kooragang – Network Operator and Retail Supplier

In progress
Start Date
Dec 2018
End Date
Jun 2019

WUA MidCo Pty Ltd has applied for a network operator’s licence and a retail supplier’s licence.  The application is for the existing Kooragang Industrial Water Scheme to provide recycled water to an industrial customer located at Kooragang Island. WUA MidCo will be relying on existing licensee Suez Water Pty Ltd to provide the network operator and retail services.

We are seeking feedback from stakeholders on the licence application.


The proposed area of operations is within the Newcastle local government area.


We assess each application against the criteria outlined in section 10(4) of the Water Industry Competition Act 2006 (WIC Act) to determine if the Minister should grant a licence.


The public consultation period is 5 December 2018 to 30 January 2019 inclusive.

What Next

We will consider feedback from stakeholders and we will make a recommendation to the Minister, whether or not to grant a network operator’s licence and a retail supplier’s licence, and its conditions.
