Group overview

Hunter Water's Customer and Community Advisory Group (CCAG) is an advisory forum made up of community representatives who provide advice on customer and community interests.

The Group is Chaired by Councillor Paul Le Mottee, representative of Port Stephens Council.

The CCAG enables two-way, open communication between Hunter Water and local councils, customer representatives, and environmental and community organisations. In recent years the group has provided advice and feedback to Hunter Water on topics including:

  • pricing reviews
  • treatment plant upgrades
  • flooding in the lower Hunter
  • land developments within our drinking water catchments
  • improving the health of Throsby Creek
