Thursday, November 15, 2018

Pricing Order for the Regulatory Period 1 July 2020 to 30 June 2024

Pursuant to section 35(4) of the Water Industry Act 2012, I have signed and issued a pricing order on 28 October 2018.

This pricing order has been prepared in order to provide information that would assist the Essential Services Commission of South Australia (ESCOSA) to prepare its Draft Determination for SA Water’s drinking water and sewerage services for the regulatory period 1 July 2020 to 30 June 2024. This pricing order does not take into account matters being considered by the South Australian Government’s Independent Inquiry into Water Pricing in South Australia.

A further pricing order may be issued to vary this pricing order prior to ESCOSA issuing its Final Determination. There variations may be required in response to the Independent Inquiry into Water Pricing in South Australia once the government has considered these matters and developed an appropriate response, together with any matters raised by ESCOSA in its Draft Determination.

A copy of the pricing order is available on the Department of Treasury and Finance website:,-taxes-and-rebates/economic-regulation

Dated: 11 November 2018

Hon Rob Lucas MLC
