On 14 December 2023, the QCA received a referral from the Queensland Government to undertake a price monitoring investigation into Gladstone Area Water Board (GAWB) for the pricing period from 1 July 2025 to 30 June 2030. The referral notice is available below.
Our price monitoring investigation has commenced and will consider a range of matters, including the appropriate prices for the period that provide GAWB sufficient revenue to recover its prudent and efficient costs.
GAWB’s submission is due by 31 May 2024 and we will be seeking initial stakeholder submissions in response by 31 July 2024. Key steps are outlined below.
