The residential sewerage charge is based per tenancy, for assessments connected to Council’s sewerage service network as set out below:
|Residential Sewer Access Charge - per enement||$834|
|Unconnected properties which are able to connect (ie vacant land)||$657|
Non-Residential sewer discharge is calculated using a formula prescribed by the NSW Department of Water Best Practises guidelines.
The formula is: Discharge = Consumption Rate x Discharge Factor x Water usage
Note: Council reserves the right to change or review the relevant discharge factor in individual circumstances.
|Meter Size||Availability Charge per annum|
|Unconnected properties which are able to connect (ie vacant land)||$468|
|CDB Low - no discharge||$834|
|CBD Medium - no discharge||$1,920|
|CBD High - no discharge||$3,345|
For land that is exempt from water access charges: see the section under ordinary rates.
Charges for sewer usage (by meter measurement) will be charged at the standard usage charge of $1.62 per kilolitre.
Example Non-Residential Sewer Charge for 2016/17
|Water Consumption (C) = 500 kL per annum|
|Sewer Discharge Factor (SDF) = 0.7|
|20mm Water Meter (AC) = $468|
|Sewerage Treatment Charge (STC) = $1.62 kL|
|Annual Bill||= AC + (C x STC) x SDF|
|= $468 + (500 x 1.62) x 0.7|
|= $468 + $567|
