A guide to the water charge infrastructure rules: publishing & non-discriminatory charging requirements

This guide is aimed at all infrastructure operators in the Murray Darling Basin. It is intended to help each of these operators develop and implement processes and practices necessary to comply with publishing requirements under the Water Charge (Infrastructure) Rules 2010 (WCIR).

It deals with the requirements of Parts 2, 3 and 4 of the WCIR, the publication and non-discriminatory charging requirements under tier 1.

References in this guide to Part 5 of the WCIR (the requirement of certain infrastructure operators (Tier 2 operators) to produce five-yearly network service plans) should be disregarded. This follows the removal, from 1 July 2017, of Part 5 from the Water Charge (Infrastructure) Rules 2010.
