Unmeasured (Unmetered) Water Supplies
Unmeasured clean water charges are calculated using the Tax on Real Property (TRP) value of a domestic building (land, outbuildings and greenhouses are excluded from Guernsey Water's calculations).
The quarterly standing charge for unmeasured supplies has increased to £28.70.
The quarterly unit charge for TRP has increased to £0.56.
Measured (Metered) Water Supplies
|Meter Size||Quarterly Charge||Charge Per Cubic Metre|
|15mm (1/2") (standard domestic size)||£28.70||£2.01|
The standing charge covers the fixed costs inherent to maintaining the wastewater network e.g. asset monitoring, staffing. The standing charge for wastewater is £36.24 per annum for every household/business, or £9.06 per quarter.
The variable charge covers the costs directly related to the amount of flow generated by each property's individual discharge e.g. sewer lining, pumping station repairs. Metered customers will be charged on 90% of the water that comes in through the meter at a rate of £0.70 per cubic metre. It is estimated that 90% of water goes to waste, this is an industry derived standard applied by many water and wastewater companies.
