Rural Water Cost Shares

Review completed
Start Date
Apr 2018
End Date
Feb 2019

IPART is reviewing the framework for sharing the efficient costs of rural bulk water services (WaterNSW’s rural services) and water management services (WAMC’s services) between water customers and the NSW Government.


During the 2016-17 review of WaterNSW’s rural prices, we committed to reviewing the current cost-share framework.  


The Review aims to:

  • consult on our cost sharing principles and objectives
  • review the current activity-based cost sharing framework, and
  • consider moving to an alternative service-based approach, if the benefits are likely to exceed the costs.
