Water Prices To Rise 3.8%

Water bills will be rising by 3.8% from April 2019.

Jersey Water says it equates to around 4p per day for an average household - or around £14.60 a year.

CEO Helier Smith says when prices are reviewed every year they try to keep costs below the rate of inflation - and have managed to do that in 18 out of the last 20 years:

“We face continuous pressure on costs as we invest to comply with new legislation, manage water quality and enhance the resilience of the Island’s water supply infrastructure. However, we have been able to limit our price increases over the past two decades and again this year by focussing on efficiency to manage the impact on customer bills. This has been achieved whilst consistently delivering very high-quality water and excellent customer service to the community that we serve.”

The company encourages people who can't afford their bills to look at ways of reducing how much water they use.
