Our final report consisted of two parts:
- Part A addressed GAWB’s proposed preparatory expenditure for the contigent supply strategy and was released in December 2007.
- Part B addressed GAWB’s proposing triggers for construction of its proposed contingent supply and was released in December 2008.
We found that it was prudent for GAWB to continue working towards implementing the Fitzroy pipeline option, but that asset creation should be deferred until it is demonstrated by be necessary and has significant customer support.
We considered that GAWB’s proposed criteria for triggering augmentation are appropriate, but that a separate trigger should apply for supply restrictions.
Our draft report comprised of two parts:
- Part A addressed GAWB’s proposed preparatory expenditure for the contingent supply strategy and was released in October 2007.
- Part B addressed GAWB’s proposed triggers for construction of its proposed contingent supply and was released in August 2008.
As part of its strategic water planning, GAWB developed a contingent supply strategy which entails the sourcing of water from the Fitzroy River near Rockhampton as the preferred option. We were directed to review:
- the prudence, efficiency and timing of GAWB’s contingent supply strategy
- the means by which efficient costs of the contingent supply strategy should be included in prices
- the criteria for triggering construction of the appropriate augmentation
- GAWB’s proposed changes to pricing practices
