Irrigators to get water rate relief


The Essential Services Commission (ESC) price decision for Goulburn- Murray Water (GMW) customers was announced recently.

The decision means most GMW customers – predominantly irrigators – will see an average 10 percent  drop in prices from 1 July 2020 and a continued 1 percent reduction for each of the following three financial years.

This price decrease will offer relief to the GMW customers who have faced significant challenges in recent years with dry conditions and drought putting upward pressure on water prices.

The ESC noted the extensive consultation work undertaken by GMW and its customers during the price decision process.
