A guide to the cost of Water in South East Queensland.

How much does water cost the average household?  Probably about $30 per week, by using the following figures.

We used 28,000 litres (28kL) of water during the 94 days in November to February.  That works out at 298 litres per day.

The cost to us of that water is calculated at:

  • $ 87.41 Water usage State Government charges. ($3.12 per kL)
  • $ 18.99 Water usage Local Government/Supplier charges.($0.69 per kL)
  • $ 82.99 Water Network Service charge. ($0.88 per day)
  • $127.58 Sewerage Charges. ($1.36 per day)

The total charge is $316.97 for the quarter, or $23.60 per week.
That also works out at $11.32 for every 1,000 litres of water used. (adding all charges together).
That is 1.1 cents for each litre of clean drinking water, whether used for drinking or watering the garden, etc.

If we used double the water that we used last quarter, ie: about 600 litres per day, the bill would have been $423.37 for the quarter.

  • $174.82 Water usage State Government charges. ($3.12 per kL)
  • $ 37.98 Water usage Local Government/Supplier charges.($0.69 per kL)
  • $ 82.99 Water Network Service charge. ($0.88 per day)
  • $127.58 Sewerage Charges. ($1.36 per day)

That works out at $31.53 per week, or
Three quarters of a cent for each litre.

 

Our local area averages about 440 litres per day, so the average bill would be about half way between the two examples.

About $370 for the quarter, or $27.57 per week, just under 1 cent per litre.
