Review of recycled water prices for public water utilities

In progress
Start Date
Sep 2018
End Date
Jun 2019

IPART is reviewing our pricing arrangements for recycled water and related services for Sydney Water, Hunter Water, the Central Coast Council and Essential Energy (in Broken Hill).

The review includes developer charges for recycled water.


IPART last established guidelines for recycled water in 2006.  We also set a determination for recycled water developer charges in 2006.  Essential Energy was not included in these guidelines.

We are reviewing our pricing arrangements to ensure these are appropriate and up to date. 

We will also make sure our methodology for recycled water developer charges is consistent with our draft decisions for other developer charges.


Our Issues Paper summarises the key issues and questions we seek comment on. 

We will hold a public hearing, and then release draft and final reports and a determination.

What next

Submissions on the Issues Paper are due by 12 October 2018.

We will hold a public hearing on 4 December 2018.

We will consider all stakeholder submissions and discussion from the public hearing, and will release a Draft Report for further comment. 

We will consider all stakeholder feedback and undertake our own analysis before making our final decisions in June 2018.
