Water and Wastewater charges

Perth & Kinross Council is not responsible for setting Water and Wastewater charges but is required by law to include in its bill the charges made by Scottish Water for Water and Wastewater Services.  The level of the charges is set by Scottish Water and is subject to scrutiny by the Water Industry Commissioner for Scotland and The Scottish Government.

Details of the Water and Wastewater charges and the amount that you are due to pay will be shown on your Council Tax bill.
