Referral notice issued

about 1 year ago

On 29 October 2018, the Queensland Competition Authority (QCA) received a referral notice from the Treasurer and Minister for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Partnerships directing them to investigate pricing practices relating to the monopoly business activities of SunWater and Seqwater undertaken for irrigation services.

The key objective of the investigation is to recommend irrigation prices for the period 1 July 2020 to 30 June 2024.

In preparation for the release of the referral notice, Seqwater has held customer forums for all irrigation schemes to outline our proposed submission to the QCA and seek feedback on the final submission (excepting the Mid-Brisbane River Irrigation Committee where a separate process is taking place).

Information is available on the QCA website.
