Calculating your bill
Your water supply charge is calculated by multiplying your water use in cubic metres by the price per cubic metre.
Your sewerage charge, if you are connected for sewerage services, is worked out in the same way but is based on only 95% of the water used.
The 5% allowance covers virtually all domestic situations, eg, evaporation, car washing, drinking, cooking and all garden related use (including normal use of hosepipes, sprinklers, paddling pools and hot tub top ups). It also takes into account wet and dry years. For the average annual household use of 150 cubic metres per year the allowance amounts to about 7,500 litres or 1,650 gallons.
If you think that considerably less than 95% of your water use is returned to the sewer, please let us know and we will find out if you qualify for a reduction in charges.
Standing charges are based on the size of the meter and are payable by all customers who receive water and/or sewerage services.
The standing charge is an annual fixed charge. Your bill includes a proportion of the standing charge based on the number of days since your last meter reading.
