Here are our 2017/18 metered business charges for the Severn Trent region.

If you have a water meter then your bills will be based on how much water you’ve used, and how much wastewater has been taken away to clean. There’s also a meter standing charge and a site fixed charge added on to this.

Here’s how we work out your charges:

Water supply charges

This is the charge for all of the water supplied to your premises, it has 3 parts:

  • A charge per cubic metre (m3) of water used.

  • A meter standing charge based on how big your meter is. This charge covers the costs of us providing services like reading, maintaining or replacing your meter.

  • A site fixed charge, which covers things like sending bills and dealing with enquiries.

Wastewater charges

This is the charge for collecting and cleaning up your wastewater, it has 2 parts, each of which has 2 charges:

  • Foul drainage – this covers the cost of taking away your wastewater, including a fixed site charge and a charge per cubic meter (m3), based on your water use.

  • Surface water drainage – this covers taking away the rainwater that falls on your premises and drains into the sewer. It also has 2 parts, a fixed charge per site and a charge based on the size of your premises.
