Water Supplied on an Unmeasured Basis

Water Rates are based on the average amount of water a metered household consumes. The Water Rate is payable by the person requiring Jersey Water to provide the supply and is payable quarterly in advance unless the supply is metered.

Cutting off the water supply due to non-payment of bills

Jersey Water may cut off the supply if a bill is not paid within twenty-eight days. If the customer is in dispute this should be stated in writing before the twenty-eight days expires.

If Jersey Water intends to cut off the water supply to an inhabited property they must give a minimum of forty-eight hours notice to both the Medical Officer of Health and the Connétable of the parish in which the property is situated.

Jersey Water must not cut off the supply of water to any premises by reason of the failure of the owner of the premises, who is not himself the occupier, to pay the Water Rate. This would be applicable to lodging houses where the landlord fails to pay the Water Rate, the water supply cannot be disconnected by Jersey Water.
