​Tariffs ​
TARR.jpg​Homeowners and businesses are charged for the service provided by Joburg Water.

In keeping with the drive to encourage everyone to conserve water – one of the scarcest resources on the planet – Joburg Water charges consumers who use more water higher tariffs than those who use much less water.
Free basic water is increased from 6kl to 10kl per household per month for registered indigents.
For current tariffs, including on commercial properties and for sanitation services see the current tariffs page.
