Pricing Submission 2018

> Community Draft released for comment

All Victorian water corporations have their services, prices and level of investment reviewed by the industry regulator, the Essential Services Commission (ESC). The ESC has set our prices until 30 June 2018 and so for the past 18 months we have been developing our future pricing submission.

A significant part of preparing for a pricing submission is engaging with customers and demonstrating that our plans include what customers value and expect or us, as well as caring for our local communities and the environment. Our proposed pricing submission also considers being an efficient and sustainable business.

This Pricing Submission 2018 Community Draft (PDF 8MB) is a summary of our proposals. It presents five Customer Outcomes that link to what we heard through customer engagement.

Our next step is to check in with customers that the Customer Outcomes, actions and investments to achieve them, and proposed customer pricing have the support of customers.

> Pricing Submission 2018 Pricing Estimator

Our pricing estimator is an online tool to help customers work out what annual charges for residential customer water service, water consumption and wastewater service fees

The estimator displays the prices for the 10-year period from 1 July 2018 and shows the current charges for 2017/18 for you to compare.
