Statement of Proposal District Wide Targeted Rates

On Display Indefinitely

Council is seeking feedback on the proposal to remove the current scheme-based targeted rates for water and wastewater and replace them with a district-wide targeted rate for water supply and a district-wide targeted rate for wastewater treatment. This will impact ratepayers connected to (or able to connect to) the 15 wastewater schemes and those properties receiving piped water from our nine water treatment plants. This proposal will not affect ratepayers who are not connected to (or not able to connect to) any Council wastewater or water scheme.
