Sewerage prices

Sewerage prices

Sewerage charges are based on the capital value of your property. The Valuer-General sets capital values annually for the next financial year.

The 2017/18 minimum charge is $78.35 per quarter.

How is my quarterly sewerage charge calculated?

Sewerage charges are worked out by applying a rate in the dollar to the value of your property. The simplest way to think of this is as a number of cents charged per $1000 of property value.

To work out your sewerage charge, divide your property value by 1000. Then multiply that number by the rate that applies to you (see below for the rates). To calculate an annual charge, multiply by four.

If the result is lower than the minimum charge, then the minimum charge of $78.35 per quarter ($313.40 annually) will apply.
