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.
IPART sets the maximum prices for farmers, irrigators, industrial users and town water suppliers who use water services provided by Water NSW and the Water Administration Ministerial Corporation.
IPART does not set water prices for regional areas where services are provided by local government.
