Top Ten: Feedback on Water

What's your water worth?

Independent experts have confirmed that since the Global Financial Crisis in 2008 we have underinvested in our three waters network and it is starting to deteriorate.

We have a $126 million backlog of pipes that need replacing immediately. It will cost up to $300 million over the next 10 years to clear the backlog.

There are three ways we could approach this problem and we want your view on the best option: 

  • Just do the minimum: Invest an extra $380 a year per household per year. 
  • Let’s get this sorted: Invest an extra $500 a year per household per year. 
  • Let’s smash it: Invest an extra $850 a year per household per year.
