The State Government is responsible for the management of all bulk water, including the dams and associated treatment facilities that supply water to Councils. The State Government charges Councils for the management of bulk water and this year have increased costs by a massive 14.27 per cent. Redland City Council has all but absorbed this increase and as a result the average Redland City household using 200 kilolitres of water a year will see 3.3 per cent increase in water consumption costs. Families using an average of 400kl/year of water will actually see a 2.9 per cent reduction in water consumption costs.
Redland City has some of the lowest water prices in South East Queensland.
