Water Charges

The original 2015 budget passed a tax relief that would be available at the standard rate of tax for water charges paid to a maximum of €500 per year. As the water charges were revised in December this credit is no longer available.

The charges which will apply for water during 1st January 2015 to 31st December 2018 are as follows

Household – Max of 1 adult       

Un-metered water & wastewater service – €160     

Un-metered / Single service – €80

Metered / Water & wastewater service – €3.70 per 1,000 litres

Metered / Single service – €1.85 per 1,000 litres

Household – 2 or more adults

Un-metered water & wastewater service – €260

Un-metered / Single service – €130

Metered / Water & wastewater service – €3.70 per 1,000 litres

Metered / Single service – €1.85 per 1,000 litres

If a household does not register with Irish Water by 2nd February a standard water charge of €260 will apply until registration takes place. Quarterly billing for water charges will commence in April 2015.
