Belizeans are about to see an increase of 2 percent in their water bills starting this month.
According to a statement issued by the Belize Water Services Limited (BWS), effective April 01, 2015, the new tariffs approved by the Public Utilities Commission (PUC) have come into effect.
Customer bills issued in April 2015 covers consumption which spans March through to April and will therefore have the old and new tariffs applied on a pro rata basis.grey BWS announces Water Rate increase
So if you have received your bill for the month of April, you will notice that there are two billing sections with different figures and the same bill date.
The first line shows the pro-rated March consumption with the old tariffs, and the second line shows the pro-rated April consumption with the new tariffs.
The release ends by reminding Belizeans that due to the dry season and Easter Holidays, their monthly bill is likely to be higher and might not be attributed to the increase in tariff.Patrick Jones
