ALERT FROM THE RANDBURG CHAMBER OF COMMERCE
NO MORE FREE WATER IN JHB FROM 1 JULY 2017 ONWARDS
The City of Johannesburg has announced its new tariffs as of 1 July 2017 for all services (and taxes).
The approved water tariffs provide that residential households will no longer receive 6 free kl in the ordinary course.
Indigent households can apply for free water; however, they must first submit their applications and have these applications approved before the free water allowance will be allocated to the invoice.
Clients and tenants must expect their bills to increase, not only as a result of the annual tariff hikes, but also as a result of the falling away of the free allowance. There will also be a “water demand management levy” added to the account.
