Metered Charges 2016 - 2017

One of our key aims is to make charges reflect, as closely as possible, the cost of the services we provide. As a metered customer you will be billed directly for all water and waste water services by Scottish Water. When we send your bill it may consist of the following elements, depending on which Scottish Water services you have:

  • Annual Fixed Charges
  • Volumetric Charges
  • Property and Roads Drainage Charges

The average metered household customer will typically have a 15mm or 20mm water meter installed.

If your home has a water meter the metered charges from 1 April 2016 until 31 March 2017 are:

Annual Fixed Charges

The annual fixed charge is based on the size of the meter serving your house or property.

Annual Fixed Charges

Volumetric Charges

These water and waste water charges are each based on the size of your meter and the volume of water recorded on the meter serving your property.

Property and Roads Drainage Charges

These charges are based on the Council Tax Band for your home/property.

Property Road Drainage

If rainwater drains to the public sewer from your property, then Property Drainage Charges will apply. Where Scottish Water deals with no Property Drainage from any part of the property, no Property Drainage Charges will be applied.

If your property has either a connection for waste water or for Property Drainage you will also need to pay a charge for Roads Drainage.
