Each council then adds on its own cost of local distribution.

According to the Queensland Competition Authority, SEQWater is selling bulk water at a loss, which is being funded by debt.
Even during the 10-year price increase path to 2017-2018, the bulk water prices are not expected to recover the costs of bulk water supply.
