Projects worth more than $766 million over the coming years will secure water supplies for our next generation.
Projects such as the Anglesea borefield, Northern Water Plant, Black Rock Recycled Water Plant and the Melbourne-Geelong Interconnection will increase our water supplies by more than 75% of our current demand.
To deliver these vital solutions, we must invest heavily in this infrastructure. As a result, price rises over the next three years will go toward funding crucial water, sewerage and recycled water projects.
From 1 July 2010, prices will increase by 10.09%
This increase has been approved by the independent Essential Services Commission (ESC).
