Commercial Water/Waste Water: Billings and Collection

Under the Water Pricing Policy of the Department of the Environment, Heritage and Local Government all non-domestic consumers of water are to be charged by Local Authorities for the supply of water and the discharge of waste water. This is in accordance with EU requirements and the "Polluter pays policy". There are no exceptions to this policy. Water provision is a service similar to electricity, gas and telecommunication services and must be paid for by the consumer.

Commercial Water/Waste Water Billings
Limerick City Council issues invoices to commercial water customers in one of two ways:
1. Quarterly - based on usage/consumption which is metered and is also subject to a minimum charge.  Bills are sent out at the beginning of each quarter.
2. Annually - based on a fixed annual charge.  Fixed Charge accounts are not metered.  Reminders are issued on Fixed Charge accounts approximately twice a year.   

Commercial Water/Waste Water Collection
