IPART administers and periodically reviews the operating licences and sets the maximum prices that can be charged for water and wastewater services by Sydney Water, Hunter Water and Water NSW. We also set maximum prices for the Water Administration Ministerial Corporation as well as the prices for urban water on the NSW Central Coast and in Broken Hill.
Information on IPART’s pricing and licensing reviews and decisions are available for each of the public water utilities we regulate at the links below.
Central Coast Council - formerly Gosford City Council and Wyong Shire Council
Essential Energy - Broken Hill
Water Administration Ministerial Corporation - services delivered by Crown Lands and Water and Water NSW
To assist water utilities and their stakeholders, we:
Provide an example of the building block financial model that we use to calculate prices.
Develop guidelines (pdf 640.02KB) for the preparation of submissions by utilities to our price reviews.
- Publish an annual report on the performance of the utilities.
