Yes. Short term consents can be issued for activities such as construction; charges for effluent discharge will be issued in advance.
Most waste volumes are determined from the metered potable water. Allowances may be subtracted to account for water not returning to the sewer, as well as allowing for sewerage waste.
Some customers may choose to install a waste meter to measure the volume directly. Without metered volumes the wholesaler will provide an estimated annual volume based on the business activities.
If regular meter readings are not being submitted, customers may be billed on a scheduled basis.
Invoicing will be based on estimates determined by the last actual meter readings.
Submitting regular meter readings allows us to invoice more accurately. Trade effluent invoices are issued in arrears, so we require regular meter readings for all meters to invoice on a read-to-read basis. Meter readings can be submitted to TEConsents@castlewater.co.uk.
Tariffs are split into several different ‘bands’ corresponding to the annual chargeable volume that the tariff applies to. The wholesaler determines which tariff applies for each water services component. Further information on this can be found in the Scheme of Charges.
