Subject: Disconnection from Sydney Water
I’ve taken the liberty to use the email list and to wish you well for this
I did notice that the reporter has quoted you as saying that “you have to pay for the connection anyway..” about the Sydney Water connection. Just wanted to let you know that I have fully disconnected from Sydney Water for both water supply & sewerage. Michael Mobbs was the driver for getting Sydney Water to change their ways & they have now introduced a new policy allowing this using a relatively simple process, similar to other utilities such as the gas, phone & electricity. By doing this I am now NOT paying any connection fee to Sydney Water, I am no longer their customer. My past bills from Sydney Water consisted of a separate fixed charge for both water supply & sewerage treatment, so I expect you could at least stop the water
