Water Charges Update
In September of this year the CER published decisions
regarding the allowed revenues for Irish Water and associated charges to
customers for the period 1st October 2014 to 31st
December 2016. In November the Government announced changes to water charges further to their review of
the overarching water charges policy framework. Legislation (Water
Services Bill 2014 (Bill No. 106 of 2014)) has been drafted to reflect these
decisions with enactment expected by the end of 2014. In that context,
the CER is currently progressing a revised water charges plan and associated
decision with a view to publication in early January 2015. Domestic
water charges are now due to commence from January 1st 2015.
The closing date for Irish Water’s validation campaign is
now February 2nd 2015.
