Upper Ovens Licence Renewal Fees

Nominations open for Upper Ovens Licence Renewal Customer Focus Group

GMW is establishing a Customer Focus Group to assist in the discussions and feedback on Upper Ovens Licence Renewals. The Focus Group will not make decisions on behalf of other customers. Its role will be to discuss and provide feedback on proposals put forward by the GMW project team, prior to taking them to the broader Upper Ovens customer group for feedback.

If you wish to participate please complete the form to register your interest by 9am, Monday 7 September 2020.

On Tuesday 8 September 2020, we will email people who registered, informing them of who else is involved. We will also provide the Agenda for the first (webinar) meeting of the Focus Group to be held at 3pm on Thursday 10 September.

For more information please email communications@gmwater.com.au or call the GMW Contact Centre on 1800 013 357.

Change to the 2020 licence renewal process

In response to this customer feedback in June, we have made some changes to this year’s renewal process:

  • For those who have not paid – we have extended the payment due date on this fee by one full year, to 30 June 2021.
  • For those who have already paid - In recognition that this has been a difficult year, you may access a full refund of the renewal fee paid to ease any short term financial pressure. The full renewal fee will then become payable by 30 June 2021.
