Water management charges

The Independent Pricing and Regulatory Tribunal of NSW (IPART) sets the prices that can be charged for the services delivered on behalf of the Water Administration Ministerial Corporation. Fees and charges are adjusted annually for inflation.

Three categories of fees and charges are levied for the water management services in NSW:

  • Water management charges recover part of the cost of water management services
  • Metering/water take assessment charges recover part of the cost of determining and recording your water usage
  • Consent transaction fees recover part of the cost of processing your applications.

For more detailed information on fees and charges and how they are set, visit Setting fees and charges or visit IPART.
