Understanding your tariffs


The tariffs for managing water and the sewer system and meter maintenance are based on the specific characteristics of the municipality of Torrevieja and current legislation.

  • Water supply, sewer system and meter maintenance

    Water is a scarce resource in Torrevieja. That is why water bills are divided into consumption tranches, so that users are charged according to their water use with an increasing tariff, so that rational water use is promoted. The income from the tariffs must cover both the regular costs of managing the system and investment in the infrastructures that the town requires.

    The tariff structure for meter maintenance is a fixed rate, while the water and sewer system tariffs have two different rates:

    • A variable part, which is billed according to consumption and is applied equally for the water and sewer tariffs. The water bill is also charged in tranches, considering the m3 consumed.
    • A fixed part, called the service fee, is a charge for immediate availability and permanent access to the service. It is applied to both water and the sewer system.
    • Drinking water supply tariffs
