Pricing Announcements for Urban and Rural Customers
Our Managing Director, Phil Endley, has today advised there will be minimal tariff increases for our rural and urban customers in the 2016/17 season. "We can today announce that the Board of Lower Murray Water has approved a tariff increase of 1.81%, on average, for rural customers. This is much lower than our scheduled price increase approved by the Essential Services Commission and set out in our Water Plan (2013-2018).
We have identified a number of cost saving initiatives which have been passed onto customers. 
For our urban customers there will be a minor increase, with tariffs rising less than 1% for the average user. This is due to higher than expected income in the past season from urban water use which has allowed us to keep tariffs low in this coming season." Full details are available here.
