Price review 2023-28

Every five years, Victorian water corporations are required to undertake a water price review by engaging customers about water and wastewater services, and the standards that customers desire from their water provider – balancing quality of outcomes with affordable prices.

The last time we did this was in 2017-18 for our 2018-23 Pricing submission. During 12 months of community engagement, our customers told us what was important to them, we listened, and we came up with a plan which was approved by the Essential Services Commission in September 2017.

It’s now time to begin this process again.

Choose your water future – Have your say

We want to hear from as many of our customers as possible.

From September through until April 2022, we’ll be running a number of engagement activities designed to capture the views and priorities of our customers. These activities include online surveys, our annual Customer Satisfaction phone survey, focus groups and other in-person events (where possible).

This feedback we get will be used to develop our next price submission, which sets out our key projects and service levels for the five year period 2023-28, including our proposed prices.

Details of each activity and how you can participate will be posted on this webpage, on our social media channels, in your water bills and advertised throughout the community.

Surveys now open

Have your say on future water services and water prices by taking our online customer surveys.

Everyone who completes a survey will go in the draw to win $500 for a local community group, sporting club, school or other registered non-profit organisation in Westernport Water’s service area.

And for every survey completed, WPW will also donate $2 to one of four chosen charities: Free 3D Hands, Bass Coast Community Fund, Phillip Island Community and Learning Centre (PICAL) and WaterAid Australia.
