The Water Plan (2013–2018) is our 5-year business plan, and outlines:
The 2013 Water Plan has been developed by Barwon Water with input from our customers and stakeholders.
The final 2013 was submitted to the Essential Services Commission — the independent regulator of the water industry — for final approval on 28 September 2012.

Under the 2013 Water Plan we are proposing no increase to our water and sewerage prices (excluding CPI) over the next 5 years while maintaining the same high level of customer service that our customers have come to expect.
Barwon Water is moving from a period of significant investment in securing Geelong's water supply to a new phase focussed on efficient delivery of quality services.
After 5 years of 'double-digit' price increases, we are conscious of cost of living pressures. We are committed to customer affordability and minimising price rises for our customers.
