The Water Authority warned on Monday that the proposed corporate water agreement will lead to lower prices for public companies at a heavy cost: Private consumers will pay more.

Consumers have repeatedly complained about exorbitant water bills despite reducing their water usage. Local corporations have cited possible pipeline leakages as an explanation. As a result, National Infrastructures Minister Uzi Landau has instructed all water corporations to refrain from sending out bills in which there is a marked discrepancy from given consumers’ average bills.

Landau has also set up a professional commission to investigate in the coming month the entire issue of gauging water use.
