Our 2018-2023 water price submission sets out our proposed prices, service standards and customer outcomes for the next five-year regulatory period.

Our price proposal has now been submitted to Victoria’s independent economic regulator, the Essential Services Commission for consideration.

The submission reflects our focus on keeping customers’ bills down, while delivering the infrastructure and services required to provide sustainable water and waste water services for regional growth, a healthy environment and vibrant communities.

Customers will be consulted throughout the commission’s review process, with the final determination expected to be released in mid-2018.

We have undertaken broader and more in-depth consultation with our customers and communities than in previous processes culminating in an independent review by a Deliberative Panel made up of 17 independent customers from within our region. Customers have been encouraged to input into the ESC processes either through various customer surveys, several focus groups and through our regular Customer and Stakeholder Workshops (held every six months) over the past 12 to 18 months and all input and feedback has been considered.

Our submission is available on the ESC website at http://www.esc.vic.gov.au/project/water/36640-2018-water-price-review/

If you would like to obtain a printed copy of our submission please contact the ESC directly. Their contact details are found at http://www.esc.vic.gov.au/contact-us/

Currently GWMWater supplies many towns with a non-drinking water supply including Kaniva, Ultima, Moyston and Elmhurst.

As GWMWater prepares its pricing submission for the 2018-2023 period it is asking customers in Kaniva, Ultima, Moyston and Elmhurst what their views are in respect to the possibility of receiving a fully treated supply of drinking water.

TechnologyOne has done a fantastic job profiling us in their recent case study video. Our staff proudly participated in the video to showcase us using their integrated systems. Have a look at the video – there is some great footage in there!
