When did the revised water utility fees come into effect?
How much will the water utility fees change?
Water utility fees have been increased by 12% on average.
Your water bill is calculated based on the amount of water you use. Every two months, someone will come to read your water meter. If your household is connected to the public sewage system, you will also be billed for the use of sewage services, which should be paid together with your water utility fees.

Water utility fees are determined based on the following two criteria:
- Amount of water used
