Reviewing Bills Guide

Gascoyne Water Co-Operative Ltd (GWC) will review a bill on the request of a customer. When a review of bill is requested the GWC will do so as soon as possible or otherwise before the end of the period of 15 business days starting on the day the request for review was received. The customer has the following rights when requesting a bill review:

  • Request a special meter reading (a small charge applies $40 including GST) of the water meter if required;
  • Request that the water meter be removed and sent away for testing of its accuracy – bearing in mind that if the meter is found to be within the prescribed tolerance for that type of meter the charge for testing will be borne by the customer;
  • If found that there has been an overcharge or undercharge then the principles outlined in the Undercharging and Overcharging Policy will apply;
  • A clear explanation of the findings/outcome of the bill review, you may request a hard copy free of charge;

If after a bill review you are unsatisfied with the outcome you may do any of the following:

  • Use the GWC’s complaints procedure (see Customer Complaints – A Guide for the Complainant guide);

  • Apply to the Energy & Water Ombudsman;
