The Public Utilities Commission, which regulates the utility companies in Belize, has conducted a Full Tariff Review Proceeding on the Belize Water Service Limited.

After careful examination of all the variables surrounding the water company's performance, the PUC has approved an average tariff increase of 1.42%, which Belizean water consumers will have to pay to BWS over the next 5 years.

Currently, consumers on the mainland are paying $17 dollars and 49 cents for every 1,000 gallons of water they consume. With newly approved tariffs, consumers will experience no increase in their water bill for the next 2 years. But, for the period of April 2022 to 2025, your water bill will go up by 2.25%.

In a 40-minute press conference today, PUC Chairman John Avery outlined how they came to this decision. It's a technical presentation, and so, here are a few important excerpts:
