Review of Regional Fixed Standpipes for the Shire of Koorda

The Water Corporation will be implementing a new management and billing structure from the 1st July 2019 and information about this change has been provided to the Shire of Koorda.

The major change is the way standpipes are billed. They will now be based on four categories shown below.

  • LA Standpipe - No Annual Service Charge / $2.534 per kilolitre Water Use Charge
  • Community Standpipe - $265.41 Annual Service Charge / $2.534 per kilolitre Water Use Charge
  • Commercial Standpipe - $4,422 to $51,958 Annual Service Charge (based on meter size and flow rate range Commercial meters are 25mm and above) / $8.353 per kilolitre Water Use Charge
  • Fire-fighting Standpipe - No Annual Fee 100% discount/ No Water Use Charge

The Shire of Koorda will need to reclassify the Standpipes under the new price structure and are asking for any feedback from the Community on how the Regional Fixed Standpipe Review may impact the water availability and the financial impacts to its stakeholders.

If Council does not reclassify each standpipe, WaterCorp will charge the Commercial Fees which will have a significant financial implication for the Shire and the Community. Reclassified standpipes may need to be controlled or locked.

Please send any comments, including which Standpipe you may use and the purpose, by 4.00pm 15th March 2019 to shire@koorda.wa.gov.au, or to:
