Water Charges & Metering
How will water charges affect Irish households?
- Households without a water meter will be charged based on the number of occupants:
- between €80-€160 for a single adult;
- between €130-€260 for two adults or more.
- Households in posses of a water meter will be charged based on the volume of the water supplied; charges will nonetheless never exceed the capped charges of €160 or €260.
- 21m3 per service is the yearly water allowance for children aged 17 years old and under.
- Charges will be capped at a maximum yearly amount until the end of 2018.
- All primary residents may register with Irish Waters to apply for a €100 conservation grant per year.
- Not permanently occupied domestic properties will also be charged if connected to either water supply or wastewater (or both).
So, what does this mean for our customers?
Well, as a customer of Irish Water your bill will be either based on your meter readings or fixed at a capped level. For those who currently have no meter installed, the uncapped level will apply. Where it’s a case that either meter readings or capped level rates apply, only the lowest rate will be billed.
