Metered 2017/18

Each year our water charges are fixed in agreement with a formula set by Ofwat, the Water Services Regulation Authority.

As a water only company we supply drinking water. Once the water has been used in your home or business it becomes wastewater, and this is the responsibility of Anglian Water, together with all issues relating to the drainage of rain or surface water. So that you only receive one bill Cambridge Water bills and collects wastewater charges on behalf of Anglian Water.

Calculating your metered bill

If you have a meter you only pay for the water that you use. Your bill will be made up of standing charges, which are fixed charges for maintaining the water and wastewater supply to your property, and volume charges.

Your water volume charge is calculated by multiplying the number of cubic metres you have used by the price per cubic metre for water.

Wastewater charges

The wastewater volume you discharge is usually calculated to be 90% of the water supplied. There is a 10% allowance for activities like garden watering, which is appropriate for most household customer purposes.

If you can demonstrate less than 90% of your metered water supply is returned to the sewer you may be eligible for an abatement. Please contact Anglian Water to make an application.
