Footnotes:

  1. If a customer’s Delivery Entitlements (DEs) are allocated between both a Premium Pricing Group and a Standard Pricing Group, the number of Delivery Entitlements in the Premium Pricing Group are counted first when assessing the tiers applicable to the Delivery Entitlements in the Standard Pricing Group. For example, if a customer holds 250 Delivery Entitlements in the IHS-Premium Pricing Group, and 50 Delivery Entitlements in the IHS-Standard Pricing Group, the 50 Delivery Entitlements in the IHS-Standard Pricing Group would all be counted as Tier 3.
  2. Casual Use includes water delivered where all of the customer’s DEs have already been exercised, or the customer does not hold any DEs. Casual Use will incur facilities charges in the relevant tier(s) as well as the relevant usage charge for each Megalitre of water that is delivered as Casual Use. For example, if a customer holds 250 Delivery Entitlements, and receives 300 Megalitres of water, the customer will pay the Tier 3 casual facilities charges plus the casual usage charge in relation to 50 Megalitres of water delivered as Casual Use.
  3. These are regulated charges determined by the Australian Competition & Consumer Commission (ACCC) and the Independent Pricing and Regulatory Tribunal (IPART). Bulk water charges are passed on by the Company from State Water and NSW Office of Water (NOW) to the Company’s customers. Our 2014-15 charges schedule has been adjusted to reflect the current 2014 ACCC determination set out in the Final Decision on State Water Pricing Application 2014-15 to 2016-17. Water administration charges levied by NOW will be reviewed by IPART during this financial year and are not expected to change until next financial year.
  4. The fixed charge is payable for any Landholding receiving water pumped from the relevant pumpstation, calculated by multiplying the area of the Landholding (in hecatares or part thereof) by the charge per hectare.
