IPART undertakes an annual audit of Hunter Water’s compliance with its operating licence. The 2018 audit is the first audit under the 2017-2022 operating licence.
We audit Hunter Water’s compliance with its operating licence as required by the Hunter Water Act 1991. We sought stakeholder views on Hunter Water’s performance during the 2018 audit period (1 July 2017 to 31 October 2018).
IPART initiates the operational audits annually. We sought stakeholder input into Hunter Water’s overall compliance with its licence to determine the audit scope.
Our audit interviews were held in November 2018.
We provided the audit report to the Minister for Energy and Utilities in March 2019.
Our next audit of Hunter Water's operating licence will commence in mid-2019.
