Here are some of the things you can have your say on:



Did you know that in the Hunter region, collectively we use 10% more than leading communities in Australia. We think we can do much better to protect our drinking water supplies by using it more wisely. Really, we should all #LoveWater. We know we need to do our part to #LoveWater too, which is why we’re actively looking at ways to minimise water losses.

Your Voice Pledge

Make a Pledge

We can all work together to save our water, so let’s all make and share our pledges to help save water. It's the little things we do in our homes and gardens that can make a big difference, like pledging to shower for just 1 minute less a day, we could all save our region 4 million litres of drinking water. And mulch your garden to save up to 10,000 litres of drinking water a year.

Price Review

Our Pricing

Our prices are based on what it costs to provide our services. Providing higher levels of service costs more, so it's important that we balance our service levels with affordability. Over the next twelve months and beyond, we will be asking for your say on issues relating to our prices, strategic direction and the services we deliver.

Temporary Desalination

Planning for Desalination

Hunter Water is seeking planning approval for the possible construction of a temporary desalination plant at Belmont. This temporary plant is our insurance policy in a worst case scenario if the Hunter reached critical water storage levels in unprecedented drought conditions. The plant would only be built after a suite of water saving, drought response measures were introduced across the Hunter.
