We were directed to develop a long-term regulatory framework for the monopoly distribution and retail water and sewerage activities of Unitywater, Queensland Urban Utilities and Logan, Redland and Gold Coast City Councils.
Under the Ministers' Direction, the QCA was to:
- develop a regulatory framework that protects the long-term interests of users of SEQ water and sewerage services by ensuring the prices of these services reflect prudent and efficient costs, while promoting efficient investment in, and use of, these services
- develop pricing principles that apply to the industry including water, sewerage, trade-waste, recycled water services and stormwater re-use services.
A final report QCA was required by 30 September 2014.
