Type of water payments

  • Flat rate: The owners or users of a water outlet pay a fixed monthly amount for the outlet they use and the water they fetch.

  • Paying according to the meter readings: The monthly payments, the owners/users of a water outlet are charged with, are calculated on the basis of (monthly) meter readings (tariff multiplied by consumption).

  • Paying per container: Many people who do not have direct access to a water outlet have to buy their water at a water kiosk or from a water reseller. Each time a receptacle is fetched a payment has to be made. (Source: MajiData).
