REVIEW OF REGIONAL FIXED STANDPIPES FOR THE SHIRE OF WESTONIA

Water Corporation will be implementing a new management and billing structure from the 1st July 2019 and information about this change has been provided to the Shire of Westonia 

The major change is the way standpipes are billed. They will now be based on four categories shown below.

  •  LA Standpipe – No Annual Service Charge/$2.534 per kilolitre Water Use Charge
  • Community Standpipe - $265.41 Annual Service Charge/$2.534 per kilolitre Water Use Charge 
  • Commercial Standpipe - $1,658.93 Annual Service Charge/$8.353 per kilolitre Water Use Charge 
  • Fire-fighting Standpipe –No Annual Fee 100% discount/No Water Use Charge 

 The Shire of Westonia will need to reclassify the Standpipes under the new price structure and are asking for any feedback from the Community on how the Regional Fixed Standpipe Review may impact the water availability and the financial impacts to its stakeholders.

If Council does not reclassify each Standpipe, WaterCorp will charge Commercial Fees which will have a significant financial implication for Council and the Community.

Please send any comments to Stacey Geier Email rates@westonia.wa.gov.au by 4.00pm Wednesday 10th October 2018.
