Melbourne Water lodged our Price Submission 2021 with the Essential Services Commission on 9 November 2020. Subject to approval, our Submission details our investments in water supply, sewerage, drainage and waterway management services for 2021–26, and the prices reflected in Melburnians’ water bills.

The Commission released their draft decision on 25 March 2021 and will now conduct their own consultation and review process, with their final decision expected in June 2021. Our new prices and service standards will subsequently take effect from 1 July 2021.

To continue following the process, please visit the Essential Services Commission’s website or Melbourne Water’s main website. This project hub will be decommissioned in the coming months.
