Charges for water and waste water

Information on charges for water and waste water that are included in your bill and collected on behalf of Scottish Water

Your Council Tax bill includes charges for water and waste-water services.

Scottish Water is responsible for setting the charges for water and waste water. Scottish Water has increased their charges for combined water and waste water by 1.6% in 2017/18. If you have any questions about the level of these charges, you can visit the Scottish Water website or phone on 0800 0778 778.

There is a reduction scheme to help some people on low incomes pay their water and waste-water charges. The reduction (up to 25%) helps households with two or more adults, who receive Council Tax Reduction and do not receive a Council Tax discount. The reduction will apply automatically and will be shown in your bill. You do not need to apply for the reduction.
