Project overview



The Water Charge (Infrastructure) Rules 2010 commenced on 12 January 2011 after being made by the Minister for Sustainability, Environment, Water, Population and Communities.

The rules create new regulation of charges for water storage, delivery and other infrastructure services provided by rural water infrastructure operators in the Murray Darling Basin.

The rules are based on two sets of advice provided by the ACCC to the then Minister for Climate Change and Water in June 2009 and February 2010.
