Final Report: SEQ water retail price monitoring

Final Report: SEQ water retail price monitoring

31 Mar 2014

Water News

As directed, the Queensland Competition Authority (QCA) has monitored the 2013-15 prices, revenues and costs of the distribution and retail water and sewerage activities of five South East Queensland (SEQ) entities – Unitywater, Queensland Urban Utilities (QUU), Logan Water, Redland Water and Gold Coast Water.

The Final Report for 2013–15 is now available.

All submissions on the Draft Report were taken into account and are also available.

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, the QCA has concerns with its pricing model that are yet to be resolved. As a result, we are unable to establish whether Redland Water is exercising its monopoly power.
