Thinking to Opt In For Fixed Wastewater Charges Upfront Payment? - Take Action Now!

news

Opting in for wastewater fixed charges upfront payment for the period 1 July 2017 to 30 June 2018 is now available. Last year, many of our landlords responded to our email and decided to opt in for the wastewater fixed charges upfront payment. From our previous years’ experience, it did make managing tenant’s water bills easier and much more straightforward.

Normally, a monthly water bill consists of water volumetric charges, wastewater volumetric charges and wastewater fixed charges. It is by law that tenants are only responsible for paying water volumetric charges and wastewater volumetric charges, while landlords are responsible for paying the wastewater fixed charges.

Watercare is trying to make things easier that now landlords can choose to pay the whole year wastewater fixed charges in advance. Thus, after this one-off annual payment, water bills that tenants receive will only show water volumetric charges and wastewater volumetric charges. At the same time, it gives Watercare authority to talk to tenants directly about bills, charges and payments.

 

WATERCARE CHANGES TO THE WATER AND WASTEWATER CHARGES (effective: 1 July 2017):

Water volumetric charges: increase from $1.444 to $1.480 per 1,000 litres

Wastewater volumetric charges: increase from $2.454 to $2.535 per 1000 litres

Fixed wastewater charges: increase from $205 to $211 per year
