E-mail: Water authority tax assessment comes out soon

Dear occupant,

You will soon be receiving your annual water authority tax assessment. This message is to let you know of this in advance, and to explain why you pay water authority taxes.

Clean water means safe living

The money raised through the water authority tax is used to benefit residents in many ways. Examples include building strong dykes and maintaining the water level. The water authority also carries out the treatment of waste water from the sewers. These are all things that help make life pleasant and safe for you.
