Water Charges

160_ltr_average_cost_247px_2013.jpgThe average domestic bill for the year 1 April 2014 to 31 March 2015 is £201 - the same as last year.

These charges pay for the abstraction, treatment and supply of top quality drinking water direct to your taps for drinking, washing and other essential household activities.


We're in the final year of our five-year £390 million programme of work to improve our water supply system and secure resources for the future.

Regional tariffs

Our charges vary from one area to another because they reflect the actual cost of abstracting, treating and distributing water in that area. These charges are based on historical tariffs agreed with the industry regulator Ofwat when all privatised water companies were formed in 1991.
