ACCC Water Monitoring Report 2019–20

The ACCC has completed its eleventh annual report under the Water Act 2007 (Cth). The report provides information on the state of the rural water sector in the Murray–Darling Basin for the 2019-20 financial year.

Sunwater - Part 6 exemption decision

On 15 December 2021, the ACCC decided to grant Sunwater Limited (Sunwater) an exemption from the operation of the requirements of divisions 2, 3 and 4 of Part 6 of the Water Charge Rules 2010 that is subject to review in 5 years' time.

The ACCC considered the factors under rule 23C(5) and it is satisfied that the application of the requirements in divisions 2, 3 and 4 of Part 6 to Sunwater would not materially contribute to the achievement of the Basin water charging objectives and principles set out in Schedule 2 of the Water Act 2007 (Cth).
