Consumer Council statement on NI Water Tariff Increase

in Water

Responding to today’s tariff review announcement by NI Water,  Graham Smith, Head of Water Policy at the Consumer Council said : “Any increase in prices is unwelcome for non domestic consumers who pay water and sewerage charges.  We have worked hard with NI Water and the Utility Regulator to make sure the increases are justified and we believe they are fair.
