What does a litre or cubic metre of water cost?

If you have a water meter, we charge you for every cubic metre of water you use. Don't forget, your bill also includes standing charges.

  • 1 litre of water costs less than 1p 
  • 1 cubic metre costs £3.08 (includes water and wastewater)

A cubic metre equals 1,000 litres of water, this is equivalent to 28 showers or 13 baths.

If you don’t have a water meter you can find out more about your charges here. You can also use our water usage calculator to see if you could make a saving based on how much water you currently use or click here to find out more about how you can apply for a water meter today.
