Twenty-two of the 28 cities studied charge for water by blocks of consumption, but with different criteria: only 12 apply corrective factors to families with more than a certain number of members. Castellon, Madrid and Pamplona are the cities with the cheapest water, and Palma, followed by Barcelona and Alicante, those with the dearest.
If the charges which 17 of the 28 municipalities impose to cover sewage or to improve infrastructures are included, Palma still has the dearest water, while Logroño has the cheapest. The Palma city council is trying to encourage residents to save water and so far has installed a special apparatus to reduce consumption in 394 homes.
The experiment will run until the end of March.
