Water prices

Water prices


Following last year’s significant pricing reductions, water price increases in 2021-22 have been limited to 1.1 per cent (subject to rounding), to reflect CPI.

Regardless of where our customers live, or the cost of providing services, state-wide pricing means most of our customers pay the same price for water. This approach is guided by the South Australian government’s commitment to statewide pricing and the principles outlined in the National Water Initiative.


We’re also playing our part in keeping business costs low and stable in South Australia by limiting average increases to business customer water charges to 1.1 per cent (subject to rounding).

How we set prices

Water and sewerage prices are set together with the South Australian Government, and within the revenue caps regulated by the Essential Services Commission of South Australia.

When setting prices, we consider many factors including the cost to operate, maintain and improve how we deliver a reliable water supply, dependable sewerage service and increase the use of recycled water for community benefit.

The South Australian government is committed to statewide pricing and the principles outlined in the National Water Initiative.SA Water - Water prices
