Price Review 2019

Hunter Water employee in uniform in discussion with a customer at the customer's front gate

We plan to invest more than $871 million in its infrastructure, technology and services over the next five years, while maintaining one of the lowest bills in the country.

Our 2020-25 Pricing Proposal to the Independent Pricing and Regulatory Tribunal (IPART), outlines our intention to make significant capital investments in upgrading the region’s water and wastewater systems, as well as continuing to focus on water conservation initiatives and reducing leakage. If approved, it would be the biggest capital spend since 2011.

Here's a snapshot of our proposal:

  • $424 million on wastewater system improvements to service growth in the region and to minimise the environmental impacts
  • $259 million on water supply improvements to service growth, reduce leakage and renew assets
  • Investments in recycled water and energy efficiency projects
  • Water conservation programs including Love Water and programs to reduce leakage.

Customer input on our services and service standards informed our submission.

IPART will review Hunter Water’s proposal and undertake a public consultation process, before releasing a draft determination in March 2020. Learn more and read our pricing submission here.
