CAIRNS ratepayers are forking out more than most people in Queensland for sewerage charges.

The region’s $735.58 wastewater charge ranks as fourth most expensive in a benchmarking report produced by AEC. Mackay came in third, Townsville was the second highest with Moreton Bay the most expensive.

Cairns Council CEO Peter Tabulo said wastewater treatment in coastal areas near the Reef were higher to meet stringent state government rules.
