How is my metered bill calculated?
Your bill is made up of a fixed and volume charges.
Fixed charge - This covers our costs for operational activities, for example: managing the infrastructure for supplying water, reading and maintaining your meter, account maintenance and managing enquiries.
Volume charge - This is based on the amount of water you use in cubic metres.
Here is an example breakdown of how we calculate metered bills:
|A family of 4 use 45 cubic metres of water in 90 days.|
Water charges from 1st April 2020:
|Volume charge||£1.0685||45 m3 x £1.0685 = £48.08|
|Fixed charge (for 90 days)||£7.09||£28.76 yearly charge ÷ 365 days x 90 days = £7.09|
|Total||£48.08 + £7.09 = £55.17|
