Although Gosford City and Wyong Shire Councils have separate water and sewerage prices the overall pricing structures and philosophies for both Councils are determined by the Independent Pricing and Regulatory Tribunal (IPART).
IPART sets prices for a range of government monopoly services including water, public transport, gas and electricity charges.
Where do our water and sewerage charges go?
Water and Sewerage charges allow us to:
- Make system improvements to the water supply and sewerage system
- Treat drinking water to Australian Drinking Water Guidelines and deliver it to properties through our network of water mains
- Maintain and operate an extensive network of water and sewerage assets
- Ensure that sewage is safely transported away from properties
- Accept treat and dispose of wastewater to current environmental standards.
