Scheme of Charges
We are required under the Water and Sewerage Services (NI) Order to approve NI Water’s Annual Scheme of Charges.
The main purpose of this process is to make sure that charges are in line with the price limits determined under the associated price control, reflecting the delivery of services at lowest reasonable cost. The approval process includes a review of charges for the supply of drinking water, the collection, treatment and disposal of wastewater, road drainage and surface water, and the treatment and disposal of trade effluent.
We seek to ensure that there is no undue preference or undue discrimination by NI Water in setting charges between different customer groups.
