Our WaterSure tariff can help you if you have a low income and you are on a meter by capping your yearly bill regardless of the water you use.
We can cap your water and sewerage charges, if you meet the following criteria:
- You are on a meter (or an assessed charge if a meter cannot be fitted)
- You or someone in your house receives benefits or tax credits
- You have 3 or more children under 19 years old living in the house for whom you’re receiving child benefit or you or someone living in your house has a certain medical condition that means you have to use extra water.
The capped annual WaterSure tariff charge for 1 April 2017 to 31 March 2018 is:
£488.00 (£538.00 less £50 government contribution)
This is broken down as below:
£212.50 for water
£325.50 for sewerage
less £50 government contribution
You can apply by completing our WaterSure Application Form and returning it to us, along with your supporting documents (listed within the application form) to: WaterSure, PO Box 643, Exeter, EX1 9ND
