The Period Covered

How We Calculate Your Charges
If you are a metered customer, your bill is calculated on a percentage of your metered supply volume. Your bill will confirm this percentage, for example 92.5%. Your bill is then calculated by multiplying your chargeable volume by the price per cubic metre for wastewater.
This is your unique meter serial number which can be found on your meter’s dial, example 01M123456.
This is the different in cubic metres between your opening and current meter readings. If your opening reading is 000001 and your current reading is 000050, your supply volume would be 49 cubic metres. Your chargeable volume could then be 45 cubic metres based on a chargeable rate of 92.5%.
This charge is proposed and approved by Ofwat each year.
Further details of our charges can be found in our Scheme of Charges document.
