The Council part of the price of Water in Locker Valley has almost doubled, from 27 cents per kL to 48.2 cents per kL. (A rise of 85.38%)

This makes my bill for 22kL in the quarter jump from $262.17 to $268.57, a 2.44% rise.

The actual Council water cost part of the total bill has risen from $5.72 to $10.60, for the quarter.
