The Waterways and Drainage Charge is collected on behalf of Melbourne Water. It’s used to protect and improve the health of rivers and creeks in the Port Phillip and Western Port region. It also assists with drainage, flood protection and flood warning systems in rural and urban areas as well as urban development planning. Customers in rural areas are charged at a lower rate to reflect the reduced services provided compared to urban customers.
In 2020-21, the annual charge is $57.28. For more information about where it applies and what it contributes to, visit MelbourneWater.com.au/wwdc or call our Customer Service Team on 1300 720 711.
