Water consumption charges

Your home – residential pricing

A three-tiered water tariff system is in place for your home. This means if you use more water (for example to water your lawns or gardens or generally in your home) you will receive a higher bill for the additional water that is used. This is the user pays system at work.

Higher consumptions during the hotter months of the year may mean residential customers move into the higher step of charging. Your consumption plays a vital role in your quarterly account calculation. Use the information and calculator on our Water Conservation page to help you save water, and money.

Water Usage Tiers from 1 July 2022 are structured as follows:
