Pricing and your Customer Contract

The Independent Competition and Regulatory Commission (ICRC) sets ACT water and sewerage prices, with any changes taking place from 1 July each year.  

From 1 July 2022, water and sewerage prices have been adjusted to account for the Consumer Price Index (CPI), market factors, and government charges.

For a typical household that uses 200 kilolitres of water per year, the 2022–23 pricing equals to a 2.2% decrease to their combined water and sewerage bill, which roughly equals an additional 50 cents less per week.
