As water bills grow, people renew wells

On December 19, the Pravda daily reported that by next year the consumption of water in Slovak households will drop to the “hygienic minimum” – 80 litres daily per capita. In 2002, Slovak households consumed 114 litres daily per capita. Rising prices are the reason for the decline.

The price of water increased by 175 percent from 2002 to 2007 and in January 2008, consumers will pay an additional 5.4 percent more due to a recent regulatory ruling. This has caused people in villages to begin using wells, which save them hundreds of crowns a month. SITA
