Sewage levy for user

The municipal authorities spend money to maintain the sewer system. The municipal authorities repairs holes and cleans drains. Old and worn parts of the sewer system are replaced. The municipal authorities pay for these costs using the tax money. Users all pay a contribution toward this cost because they all drain water into the sewers.

For whom?

The resident of a home connected into the sewer system. The home should have its own kitchen, bathroom / shower and toilet.

Vlaardingen
Households using more than 500 cubic metres of water. The home should have its own kitchen, bathroom / shower and toilet, and be connected into the sewer system.

How is the tax calculated?

Delft
You pay a fixed rate up to 500 cubic metres. Even if you use less than that. If you use more than 500* cubic metres, you pay the fixed rate plus a rate for each additional cubic metre. A family with normal use does not exceed the 500 cubic metres.
*The water consumption in the current tax year is not known yet.  That is why we send the tax bill for the water consumption in the previous year.

Vlaardingen
There are several rate categories. Depending on the quantity of water used, you pay a fixed rate per category. The water consumption in the current tax year is not known yet. That is why we send the tax bill for the water consumption in the previous year.
