We’re sure you’ve heard by now that water tariffs will be going up for the first time since 2000. That means more pain for our wallets ahead!
The increase will fund the higher costs of desalination and Newater production, as well as that of maintaining Singapore’s current water infrastructure.
Demand is expected to double by 2060, and every additional drop of water will have to come from more expensive water sources.
The hike will be carried out in two phases: in July 1 this year, and July 1 next year. The total increase, including taxes, will be about 30 per cent.
