Understanding the tariffs
The tariffs for managing water, sewerage, the wastewater treatment levy and the refuse collection charge are drawn up on the basis of the specific characteristics of the %CIUDADAVISOLEGAL% municipality and current legislation.
Water and seweage
The %CIUDADAVISOLEGAL% municipality has limited water resources. This is why billing by consumption tranches is applied, so that users are billed according to their water consumption and with progressively higher rates, to foster rational use of water. The income from the tariffs must cover both the regular costs of managing the system and investment in the infrastructures that the town requires.
The tariff structure for the water and sewerage service has two different parts:
- The variable part, which is billed according to consumption and is applied equally for the water and sewerage tariffs. The water tariff is also billed by consumption tranches, based on m3 consumed.
- The fixed part, called the service fee, is a charge for the immediate availability and permanent access to the service. It is applied to both water and sewerage.
