We need you!

South Gippsland Water needs your help to plan for future water and wastewater services in our region.

We’ve put together a series of two-hour workshops that we’d love you to join to give us your thoughts on finding the balance between the services we provide, the infrastructure we need to maintain those services, and how we approach the challenges of future growth and climate change.

All participants will be reimbursed $100 for their time.

We’re looking for about 30 people to put their hands up for each one, and it would be great to see representatives from our towns right across South Gippsland and the Bass Coast.

The three workshops are:

Discussing the recent boil water advisory for Inverloch

Setting up a $10,000 Community Resilience Grant in response

21 June 2022, 4pm to 6pm,

Inverloch Community Hub

You told us. We listened. Let’s work together to make commercial wastewater tariffs work

28 June 2022, 4pm to 6pm

Leongatha’s Memorial Hall, Meeting Room 1

Finding the balance between prices, services and our future sustainability

29 June 2022, 4pm to 6pm

Wonthaggi Workmen’s Club, Cavil Room

Pre-registration for the workshops is required in order to confirm numbers for catering and reimbursement.

If you’re interested in attending any of these workshops, email media@sgwater.com.au or alternatively phone our friendly Customer Service Team on 1300 851 636.

South Gippsland Water is not privately owned, we’re a public utility. As such, our role is to provide our communities with reliable water and wastewater services at a reasonable cost.

Once we’ve come up with a plan for the next five years, we need to submit what’s known as a Price Submission to the Essential Services Commission, the economic regulator of the Victorian water industry.

The submission sets out our understanding of what our customers value, the services we will deliver to achieve the outcomes customers have endorsed, and the prices we proposed to charge for those services.

The Price Submission applies for the period 2023 to 2028.
