Customer forums

Thank you to all our customers who participated in our online customer forums.

There were many so many great conversations and ideas, which will help inform our future water plans and prices for our next price submission

We’re now collating all the feedback from our customer engagement activities and will be sharing our draft price submission with customers for feedback in June or July.

Who can participate in the customer forums?

Anyone who lives, works or owns property in Westernport Water’s service area. You don’t need any special knowledge or expertise – this is about understanding your needs and preferences as a customer.

What’s involved?

You’ll attend an online forum where you’ll hear from Westernport Water staff about some of the key projects we’re proposing over the next five-year pricing period. As a group, you’ll then consider, discuss and influence the direction of these projects.

The forums are being held via ZOOM as a COVID-safety precaution and to enable customers to participate from home.

There are two forums to choose from, each focusing on a different topic, plus a shorter ‘mini-session’. You can choose which forum you want to attend, and you can attend more than one.

Get paid to share your views

Everyone who participates will be paid for their time in the form of a $100 credit on their water bill or a family pass to Phillip Island Nature Parks. Participants who attend the mini-session will receive a $50 credit or a single pass to Phillip Island Nature Parks.

How to apply

Register your interest using this form and we’ll get in touch with more details.

Places are limited.
