IPART is undertaking a 5-year review of Hunter Water’s operating licence. The review will determine if the existing licence is fulfilling its objectives, and whether any issues have arisen during the current term that may impact on its effectiveness. We have released the draft operating licence package as the second step of the review process. The package includes the draft report, draft operating licence with the customer contract, draft cost benefit analysis and draft reporting manual. IPART is calling for public submissions to the draft operating licence package.
