IPART has received a direction from the NSW Government under section 16A of the Independent Pricing and Regulatory Tribunal Act 1992 (IPART Act). This direction requires us to include the efficient costs of WaterNSW complying with two specific Government directions in the prices we set for services provided by the Murray River to Broken Hill Pipeline (the Pipeline). The two Government directions to WaterNSW are to build, operate and maintain the Pipeline; and to construct the Pipeline of substantially Australian rolled steel and meet the minimum targets of the NSW Infrastructure Skills Legacy Program. The WaterNSW prices we will set for the Pipeline’s services will apply from 1 July 2019.
