  •  Starting date for domestic water charging has been pushed back to 1 January 2015; first bills to issue from April 2015.
  • There will capped charges of €160 for single adult households and €260 for all other households until end 2018, with specific legislative provision to be made to allow for capped charges to continue to be set from 2019 onwards;
  • All eligible households will receive a water conservation grant of €100 per year;
  • The net yearly cost for water will be either €60 for a single adult household or €160 for all other households until 2019;
  • For the purpose of metered bills, the charge for water in/out is reduced to €3.70 per 1,000 litres (almost 25% lower than the previous subsidised rate);
  • Households with either a water supply only or sewage only service will pay 50% of these rates;
  • Metered usage can lead to lower charges.  So if your meter comes in lower than the capped charge you pay the metered charge; the Children’s allowance remains at 21,000 litres per annum and will apply to all persons resident in the dwelling aged under 18 (irrespective of whether the child qualifies for Child Benefit), meaning children will continue to go free;
  • Dwellings that are not permanently occupied will pay a minimum of €125 per year (€62.50 per service) up to a cap of €260;
  • PPS Numbers will not be required for registration with Irish Water.


All households will know what their maximum bills will be until the end of 2018, which is particularly important for larger households or those with high usage due to medical needs.
