QCA SUNWATER IRRIGATION PRICE REVIEW SUBMISSION

To commence the review the QCA sought submissions from both businesses, followed by a series of public consultation meetings throughout the state attended by stakeholders, local water boards and growers. QCA is to provide a draft report to Qld State Government by 31st August 2019 which will then be followed by a further round of public consultations. Stakeholders response to, in KCGO’s case, Sunwater’s submission were to be lodged by 8th March 2019.
