Note: This Schedule of Charges should be read in conjunction with:  

Access Charge (excludes Towns, WWSD, Cudgel Creek)

Network and Usage Charges (excludes Towns, WWSD, Cudgel Creek)

Government Bulk Water Recovery Charges

Bulk Water Charges are regulated State Government charges determined by IPART and passed through to all customers.  Where the rates invoiced to MI differ from those published below, we will pass through the actual invoiced charges.

^       Conveyance Bulk Water charges are recovered by MI through this charge. Conveyance charges are net of the Irrigation Corporation & Districts Rebate provided by WaterNSW.

Access, Network and Usage Charges - Towns, WWSD, Cudgel Creek

*    Towns - Towns have Special Purpose Access Licences with higher access priority than other customers.

Cudgel Creek - Customers along Cudgel Creek.  These customers receive only limited offtake services.

WWSD - Customers with Stock & Domestic rights in the Wah Wah Stock & Domestic District.  These customers are supplied through large earthen open channels twice per year into above-ground tanks.

^    Casual Usage charge is applied to water deliveries in excess of 120% of the customer’s delivery entitlements or where the customer does not hold any delivery entitlements.

Prudent Discounts

Prudent discounts are applied to some infrastructure services to attract customers that would not otherwise use our services. Prudent discounts lower the fixed costs for all customers by increasing network utilisation and revenue for the business.

Other Charges

~    Drainage Reuse Licences were formerly issued to customers on drains flowing south from the area of operations and outflowing to the Murrumbidgee River.  New Licences are not being issued.
