Koo Wee Rup-Longwarry Flood Protection District: levels of service and pricing survey results

Results of engagement

June 2020

In February Melbourne Water invited property owners in the Koo Wee Rup–Longwarry Flood Protection District to have their say on proposed service levels and prices for 2021-26, in relation to the special drainage and flood mitigation services we provide in the area. These works are funded by the Precept Charge.

After reviewing feedback with the District Advisory Committee, and with their agreement, we are proposing a hybrid of Options 3 and 4 (Flood protection and Waterway improvement service packages) at an average price of $252 per property, per annum. This proposal will be included in our Price Submission to the Essential Services Commission, and subject to their review and approval, the new service levels and prices will take effect from 1 July 2021.

See the bulletin on the Your Say page for more details.
