How much does water cost?
Our charges cover the costs of supplying water to your home and disposing of it safely when you have finished with it.
If you have a water meter you pay:
- A charge for the amount of water you have used (in cubic metres)
- A standing charge which includes the cost of reading and maintaining your meter, sending bills and dealing with enquiries
- A charge for wastewater services (collecting and disposing of your used water) based on the amount of water you have used (in cubic metres)
- A fixed charge for dealing with surface water and highway drainage.
