What is the Save the River Murray Levy?

What is the Save the River Murray Levy?

The State Government announced the end of the Save The River Murray Levy in June 2015.

The State Government imposed the Save The River Murray Levy on all SA Water customers in 2003-04.

Between 2003-04 and 2014-15, nearly all of our customers were charged the Save the River Murray Levy.

The levy was paid in quarterly instalments to SA Water as part of a customer's water rates, except by customers who received a concession on water rates.

The levy was set up because of community demand for better water supply security.

Levy payments went into a special Save the Murray Fund and by law could only be spent on measures to improve the health of the River Murray by increasing the quantity and quality of the river's water.

The State Government announced the end of the Save The River Murray Levy in June 2015. Bills recording water usage from 1 July 2015 will no longer incur the levy.
