Table 3: GOVERNMENT BULK WATER CHARGES

Table 4: IHS FILTRATION CHARGES

 

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 DEs in the Premium Pricing Group are counted first when assessing the tiers applicable to the DEs in the Standard Pricing Group. For example, if a customer holds 250 DEs in the IHS-Premium Pricing Group, and 50 DEs in the IHS-Standard Pricing Group, the 50 DEs 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. The Casual Use Charge is calculated by adding, for each Megalitre of Casual Use: (1) the Usage Charge; plus (2) the facilities charge that applies to a DE in the relevant Pricing Group and tier. For example, if a customer holds 250 DEs, and receives 300 Megalitres of water, 50 Megalitres are counted as Casual Use. The Casual Use Charge is then calculated as the sum of the Usage Charge (Casual Use) for the applicable Pricing Group, plus the Tier 3 facilities charge for that Pricing Group, multiplied by 50.
  3. 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.
