The rates for water by meter are separately assessed. Meters are read and invoiced on a three-monthly cycle.
Rates for water consumption measured by meter includes a supply/connection charge. For supply areas with metered water, the rate per cubic metre and supply/connection charge are as follows.
Volumetric Water Charges (water by meter)
These rates are assessed on rating units that are extraordinary water supply users (as defined in Council’s Bylaws) and those that have chosen volumetric charging. The rate is assessed on a differential basis based on the level of service provision (connection size and number of connections).
||Charge per connection
|15 mm to 20 mm
Where a rating unit is supplied, in any rating year, in excess of 380 cubic meters, an additional consumption charge of $1.53 per cubic meter of water supplied in excess of 380 cubic meters will be charged.
