Chairperson of the Essential Services Commission of SA (ESCOSA), Pat Walsh, said the draft report, Inquiry into Reform Options for SA Water's Drinking Water and Sewerage Prices, was the result of an 18-month inquiry, referred to ESCOSA by the State Treasurer.

He said the inquiry stemmed from the South Australian Government's Water for Good plan, which identified pricing reform as a key element in ensuring long-term water security and efficiency for the State.
Dr Walsh said ESCOSA's inquiry had a very specific focus - to look at possible ways in which pricing could be made more economically efficient to maximise growth of the South Australian economy.
"ESCOSA's job in this case was to look at whether water prices could be better structured within the parameters of SA Water's existing annual revenue base," he said.
"Against this, the draft report examines what water prices could look like if they reflected the true cost of water used by the vast majority of South Australians," Dr Walsh said.
"It considers how SA Water prices the usage and the supply of water, and whether there are more cost-reflective ways to charge for both."
ESCOSA's draft report estimates that the true cost of water usage by Adelaide metropolitan households and businesses may be about 62 cents per kilolitre compared to the average usage price paid for water of $2.96 per kilolitre.
"At the same time, if usage charges were set at that level, to achieve the same revenue outcomes for SA Water, supply charges would need to increase by around three times their current levels," Dr Walsh said.
