Irrigation price investigation 2025–29

Status
In progress

We have been directed by the Queensland Government to review the irrigation pricing practices of Seqwater and Sunwater. The purpose of the review is to recommend irrigation prices to apply for the four-year period from 1 July 2025 to 30 June 2029.

We published the businesses’ pricing proposals on 1 December 2023 and held stakeholder workshops from mid-January to mid-February 2024. The workshop presentations and a summary of the issues raised at each workshop are provided below.

Submissions invited by 29 February 2024

We invite stakeholders to make submissions on the businesses’ proposals and any other issues considered relevant to our review by 29 February 2024.

Submissions do not necessarily need to be detailed or comprehensive – brief comments on specific issues are welcome. We also welcome collaboration between stakeholders to provide joint submissions. Where possible, stakeholders should provide evidence to support their statements.

For more information about our review and how to make a submission, please read the stakeholder notice and stakeholder guidance paper.
