Understanding your tariffs
The tariffs for managing water and the sewer system are based on the specific characteristics of each town or municipality and current legislation.
The tariff structure for the service has two different parts:
- A variable part, which is billed according to consumption and is applied equally for the water and sewer tariffs. The water bill is also charged in tranches, considering the m3 consumed.
- A fixed part, called the service fee, is a charge for immediate availability and permanent access to the service. It is applied to both water and the sewer system.
The income from the tariffs must cover both the regular costs of managing the system and investment in the infrastructures that the town requires.
