New step tariffs effective from 1 April 2021 have been introduced for customers in the Northumbrian, Anglian, Essex & Suffolk or Hartlepool areas. The rates will appear separately on your bills for water and sewerage when your consumption has exceeded 500m3. You can view the new tariffs below for the respective regions that the tariffs apply.

If you're on a Standard Tariff for Water or Sewerage, the first 500m3 of consumption will be charged at one rate.
