The Essential Services Commission conducts price reviews for all Victorian water businesses. We are currently reviewing the prices for Goulburn-Murray Water, South Gippsland Water and Western Water.

The final decisions from our water price reviews include regulated prices for certain water services. These prices reflect requirements for that water business or water management process and aim to ensure sustainable outcomes for Victorian water consumers.

We use findings from these reviews to create tariffs for Victorian water businesses. These schedules help determine fixed and variable water prices for consumers.
