Water bills to drop next financial year for Central Victorians

The Essential Services Commission’s released the prices for the remaining 12 water organisations around Victoria which were under review.

Among those was Coliban Water, which covers the majority of Central Victoria from Kerang in the North to Kyneton in the south.

Coliban customers will pay 1.9 per cent less on their water bills from the start of the 2018-19 financial year thanks to the review or 26 dollars less on an average annual 1365 dollar bill.

Essential Services Commission chair Ron Ben-David says it’s a good result for custumers with prices for 10 of the 12 organisations will either staying the same or falling.

“We dared the water businesses to think big and today we’re seeing the dividends for customers from that dare.

“We challenged the water businesses to work with their customers to find the best ways to deliver real service improvements while also saving customers hundreds of millions of dollars over the next five years Dr Ben-David said.
