GAWB price monitoring 2025–30

In progress

On 14 December 2023, the QCA received a referral from the Queensland Government to undertake a price monitoring investigation into Gladstone Area Water Board (GAWB) for the pricing period from 1 July 2025 to 30 June 2030. The referral notice is available below.

Our price monitoring investigation has commenced and will consider a range of matters, including the appropriate prices for the period that provide GAWB sufficient revenue to recover its prudent and efficient costs.
