How much will my water and sewerage cost in Fethiye, Marmaris, Bodrum, Ovacik, Dalyan, Seydikemer and other towns and villages in the Muğla province of Turkey in 2015?
Muğla Metropolitan Council operates the water and sewerage services for towns and villages in its area, having taken over from individual councils and village water cooperatives.
Muğla Council Water Charges 2015
There have been rumours that under the new Muğla authority water charges would be 5 TL per m3 (tonne of water).
The actual cost is less.
The Council is now issuing a helpful tariff comparison sheet with each water bill issued to explain to consumers the charges and how they compare with other cities and provinces in Turkey.
For domestic users (Mesken), the rate in Mugla is 2 TL for the first 20m3 and then 2.60 TL above that.
Sewerage is charged at 1 TL per m3 but based on the consumption of water via the meter reading.
The combined charge for water and sewerage including KDV and environment tax is 3.50 TL per m3.
All bills are issued by an official meter reader having taken a reading of the water meter.
The Water and Sewerage Bill
An example bill can be found below.
Payment: How, When and Where
All bills include details of where the bills can be paid and when.
The final payment date, son ödeme tarihi, and even the last hour, son ödeme saati, is stated on the bill.
Late payment will attract an interest charge.
If you have a participating Turkish bank account and access to internet banking you can arrange to pay by direct debit.
This is ideal if you are a second home owner and out of Turkey when the bill arrives.
Save water, save money, help the environment.
