MORE than 300,000 Queensland families have been told their water and sewerage charges will be frozen for a year.

Unitywater, which provides water for Sunshine Coast, Noosa and Moreton Bay councils, said it had restructured tariffs to spare households the usual cost-of-living rises.

This freeze only applies to the Unitywater component of customers’ bills, with the State Government yet to finalise its pricing on the bulk water component.

Bulk water charges are usually about one-quarter of household bills.

“Over the past three years, Unitywater has saved approximately $38 million from the operating budget and reduced forecast capital expenditure by approximately $390 million,’’ Unitywater chairman Jim Soorley said.
