Water will be more expensive in Jēkabpilis from December

SIA “Jēkabpils water” provides water supply and sewerage services to more than 4.3 thousand users in the city of Jēkabpils and the neighboring village of Brodu. The company has just submitted a tariff draft to the Public Services Regulatory Commission, which foresees a 43% increase in the water tariff and a 39% increase in the sewerage tariff. The fee for water is planned to be raised to 1.26 euros per cubic meter from December, while the fee for sewage – to 1.73 euros per cubic meter. Residents evaluate the news negatively.

“It is not at all encouraging that they have already decided that it will be more expensive, so what else can we do? You won’t do anything.”

“It is not good. How will this affect your family? Especially, I think, not much, because we live in a private house, we can save from well water. To be honest, we use quite a bit of city water. It is also understandable that it will be more expensive. Will see. If we work, we will be able to pay, if we don’t work, we won’t be able to.”

“Very bad. What more can I say? Will you try to save water use somehow? Of course, of course.”

The municipality of Jēkabpils explains that the tariffs had to be increased because they were increased last time in 2014. The executive director of the council, Uldis Skreivers, emphasizes that the main reason is the rise in electricity prices. In Jēkabpils, water is obtained from deep wells, and electricity is needed both for water pumping, iron removal and other processes.

“”Jēkabpils water” is a large energy consumer, they have a large amount of electricity. You can see for yourself that electricity has arisen. The minimum wage must also be provided to those people who work. There, a large number of people work on the minimum wage. Over the years, if I’m not mistaken, they have had the minimum twice. All materials have originated. Annual inflation is 21%. To say under these circumstances that there is no reason to build…” says Skreivers.

The tariff draft was submitted for the first time on August 11, but due to the requirements of the Public Services Regulatory Commission, the draft had to be corrected several times.

“We submitted a tariff project with the annual cost of electricity. As we know, electricity costs were much cheaper last year. The regulator told us to recalculate and take the current prices,” explains Artūrs Smagars, a member of the board of the Jēkabpils water company.

Already in the first version of the project, it was indicated that the cost of electricity and fuel had increased by 180%. Other costs have also increased, for example, for economic activity, personnel and insurance. Artūrs Smagars emphasizes that the tariffs, which will come into force in December, will be relevant only until May next year.

“The first part will be with state support until May 1st, so the tariff will be cheaper, after May 1st it will be more expensive without state support. With the support, only the cost of electricity will be included in the tariff. Distribution costs, all others – they will not be included. From May 1, there will be a full tariff accordingly. The electricity section will contain the full cost of electricity,” explains Smagar.

The total tariff for water supply and sewerage services in Jēkabpils and Brodu village is planned to be 2.99 euros per cubic meter from December to May, and 3.06 euros per cubic meter from May. The latest version of the tariff project was submitted to the Public Utilities Regulatory Commission last week. Now we have to wait for the commission’s answer.
