Water and Sewerage Charges

Argyll and Bute Council is not responsible for setting these charges but is required by law to include these charges in its bill.

The level of the charges is set by the Water Authority and is subject to scrutiny by the Water Industry Commissioner and the Scottish Government.  Please refer to the enclosed leaflet from Scottish Water for further information on the service provided.

Water and sewerage charges are not included in your bill if you have a metered or private water supply and are connected to a private septic tank.  Please contact the Council’s Customer Service Centreon 01546 605511 if you believe you are wrongly charged for water and sewerage.
