Water rates will drop for the first time since 2017

For the first time since 2017, water tariffs for households are expected to fall this coming January, the Water Authority said today (Thursday). Home water rates have dropped by about 1.76%, which means for the average consumer: a reduction of about NIS 5 for a periodic bill. The reduction is mainly due to an increase in income from water sales, the linkage of the tariff to the basket of indices, the differences in taking into account sources from previous years and more.

The tariff for the quantity sold (the low tariff) will now be NIS 7.506 per cubic meter (instead of NIS 7.641 per cubic meter), while the tariff for each additional quantity (the high tariff) will be NIS 13,475 per cubic meter (instead of NIS 13,717 per cubic meter). By law, water tariffs must reflect their true cost, and are updated twice a year: in early January and early July.

Against the background of global climate change and population growth, the water economy in Israel is in the midst of a long-term move aimed at ensuring a regular water supply to all its residents along with sustainable conservation of natural water sources and water supply to nature. In addition, Israel is a world leader in the field of wastewater treatment, thus providing water for agriculture and preserving the values ​​of nature in this difficult climate zone.

Director of the Water Authority and Chairman of the Water Authority Council Giora Shaham: For tight and close control of the tariff, as much as possible. “
