Retail water - price monitoring 2013–15

Retail water - price monitoring 2013–15

05 Feb 2014

Water News

As directed, we have reviewed the 2013–15 prices, revenues and costs of the distribution and retail water and sewerage activities of five south east Queensland water retailers:

  • Unitywater
  • Queensland Urban Utilities (QUU)
  • Logan Water
  • Redland Water
  • Gold Coast Water.

In summary, we found no evidence of the exercise of monopoly power in 2013–15 for Unitywater, QUU, Logan Water and Gold Coast Water. 

With regards to Redland Water, we have concerns with its pricing model that are yet to be resolved. As a result, we are unable to establish whether they are exercising its monopoly power. 

Comments on the Draft Report are due by 28 February 2014. All comments will be taken into account in preparing the Final Report due 31 March 2014.
