What emerges from the Observatory Prices and Tariffs of Cittadinanzattiva – carried out as part of the project “Consapevolmente consumatore, ugualmente Cittadino” ("Consciously consumer, equally citizen") and financed by the Ministry of Economic Development (Ministerial Decree of February 7, 2018) – is that in 2019 the amount spent by a family (average family of three members with an annual consumption of 192 cubic meters) for the water bill is equal to €434, which reflects a 2% increase compared to 2018.
The regions in central Italy reaffirm their primacy for the highest rates with € 595 per year (+ 2.7% compared to 2018); yet, the greatest increase is found in the South and in the Islands (+ 3.1%).
