Water charges heating up

UNITYWATER customers are set to experience a significant increase in the cost of water and sewerage charges.

Starting from July 1, 2023, residential customers will face a near 6% hike in their bills, amounting to an additional $22.50 per quarter.

The price surge, announced by Unitywater Chief Executive Officer Anna Jackson, reflects the utility’s escalating operational expenses.

In acknowledgment of the additional financial strain on customers, Unitywater will provide support measures for those requiring assistance in managing their bills.
