Water bills in Birmingham, UK have been rising steadily over the past few years. The average household now pays around £380 per year for water and sewerage services. The utility company Severn Trent Water is the main provider in the Birmingham area. They cite the need to upgrade aging infrastructure as one reason for the price increases. Environmental regulations and the cost of chemicals/energy have also contributed to higher operating costs that get passed on to customers. Consumer groups have complained about bill affordability, especially for low income households. There are some water bill rebate programs in place to assist vulnerable groups. But there is an ongoing debate about whether the rising water rates in Birmingham and other UK regions accurately reflect the true cost of water delivery while keeping water accessible for all.
