On 1 April 2021 we introduced some new step tariffs for customers in the Northumbrian, Anglian, Essex & Suffolk and Hartlepool areas.  The rates will appear separately on your bills for water and sewerage when your consumption has exceeded 500m3. You can view a breakdown of the new tariffs for 2022/23 by wholesale area below.

Northumbrian Area

If you are on a Standard Tariff for Water or Sewerage, the first 500 m3 of consumption is charged at one rate. 

Everything that you use over 500 m3 is charged at a lower rate.

If you have Trade Effluent, the step tariffs apply to Reception volumes. There are rates for consumption below 500, between 500 and 50,000, and then over 50,000 m3. The step charge is only applied to Reception volumes. All other components are charged at a single rate.
