2020/2021 WATER FEES AND CHARGES CLARIFICATION

Dubbo Regional Council (DRC) wishes to clarify a figure that was reported in local newspaper the Daily Liberal, in an online article on Tuesday 23 June, and subsequently printed in Wednesday’s 24 June edition.

A typing error was made by the Daily Liberal when referring to increases in water charges which said the Dubbo water consumption charges would increase from $2.07/kl to $2.21/kl. This was incorrect. Dubbo water consumption charges will only be increasing by 2.42% to $2.12/kl – far less than the reported amount in the Daily Liberal article. The below table is a summary of all water access and consumption charge increases across the local government area:
