Metropolitan water 

IPART sets the maximum prices that declared water utilities can charge for water and wastewater services, but your actual bills depend on how much water you use. Your water utility can provide more information about individual bills.  

Rural water

IPART sets the maximun prices for farmers, irrigators, industrial users and town water suppliers who use water services provided by WaterNSW and the Water Administration Ministerial Corporation.

IPART does not set water prices for regional areas where services are provided by local government.
