Hungarian government to unify water service fee
The Hungarian government is planning to establish a system of uniform water service fees. The bill regulating the universal water service will soon be involved in the Hungarian Parliament’s agenda.
The government has aimed to continue reducing utility fees, introduce a uniform water service fee, coordinate maintenance work and ensure access to EU funding necessary for developments.
Water utilities act was adopted in 2011 in order to establish grounds for the consolidation of the water utilities segment. As an advancement of this process the unification of tariff system can be the next step to reduce fees. The number of water supply companies have been reduced from 400 to 40 and more reductions are expected to take place.
