This Seqwater water scheme review forms part of the review that the QCA undertook in 2012-13 for the Queensland Government: the Seqwater Irrigation Price Review 2013–17.
You can read more about the pricing review on our project home page. You can also view the submissions for the water schemes that we received, the consultants' reports and issues arising from face-to-face consultation with stakeholders.
We recommended a new irrigation price path, to apply from July 2013 to June 2017 – with prices moving in a direction that better reflect costs.
- Key to the findings were the recovery of Seqwater's costs and the smoothing of future price increases.
- All Seqwater schemes will now have two-part tariffs consisting of a fixed (Part A) price per megalitre (ML) of nominal water allocation and a usage (Part B) price per ML of water use.
- For the majority of schemes, our recommended prices result in increases to fixed prices and reductions in usage prices.
