VicWater Submission – ESC Review of the Water Pricing Approach
During June, VicWater prepared a submission in response to the Essential Services Commission’s (ESC) Consultation Paper – Review of water pricing approach. The Review follows the revision of the Water Industry Regulatory Order (WIRO) in October 2014 that now allows the Commission to consider a broad range of pricing approaches to deliver efficient pricing and service outcomes for Victorian water and sewerage customers. A copy of the consultation paper is available here. The ESC review will take approximately 18 months to complete. The selected pricing approach(es) will underpin our next major water price review for the fourth regulatory period from 1 July 2018.
