## In the Philippines, how is water usage calculated?

Do we have to wait for the MBWD’s meter reader to figure out how much water we use in a month? There’s no need! In fact, using basic mathematics, we can calculate our monthly water consumption. The key to understanding your household water usage is to look at your water meter. The amount you are charged each month on your water bill is determined on the reading from your water meter.

1) For starters, you might be curious in how much water you use in a day. You may calculate how much water you and your family used by comparing the two totals from your meter at the start and end of the day.

2) Checking for leaks is the second reason. Look at the leak detection indicator* on your meter after you’ve turned off all the taps and water-using appliances in your house. If it’s turning, you’ve probably got a leak someplace.

Read your meter at the same time every day for the best results. Water usage is measured in cubic meters by meters.

To figure out how much water you’ve used since your last measurement, multiply the current meter reading by the prior meter reading (from your water bill) to get the number of cubic meters utilized. If your prior reading was 001,200 and your new reading is 001,250, you have used 50 cubic meters of water since your previous reading. Because one drum equals 200 liters, 1 cubic meter is equal to 5 drums.

It is a novel Metro Bangued Water District connection installation technique in which water meters of clustered concessionaires or concessionaires whose dwellings are close together are put or clustered at just one location and share one tapping point at the District’s distribution line. Furthermore, all water meters have been set at the road’s shoulders or outside private houses. All meters that were previously set inside private lots were transferred outside the concessionaires’ grounds.

The following are the goals of water meter clustering:

• Non-revenue water will be reduced as unlawful connections and water meter theft are avoided, and the likelihood of future leaks will be reduced as tapping sites in distribution lines are vulnerable to leakage owing to wear and tear.
• To avoid unpleasant situations and make disconnection activities easier to conduct.
• To avoid mishaps such as dog bites when reading meters, etc.

## How can you figure out how much water you use in a month?

Meters keep track of how much water is consumed. You may calculate how many units of water you’ve used since your last meter reading by subtracting the current measurement from the previous reading. To calculate your water consumption in dollars, multiply the units by your current water rate.

## How is the cost of water calculated?

Because water rates vary a lot from county to county, you should double-check your local water rates with your municipality AND keep an eye out for any recent or impending changes in their pricing system.

Due to aging waterworks infrastructure, many areas in the United States have seen a significant increase in their water rates, so contact your municipality and confirm what rate you are currently being charged per unit of water measurement (by the gallon or by the cubic foot) AND whether that figure is likely to change.

Simply multiply your estimated usage for this month by the unit rate to determine a potential bill.

All of this information about how the provider determines your bill should be clearly presented on your statement. If you’re still unsure whether you’re paying too much or suspect a faulty or erroneous meter reading, contact your local municipality or water agency. On your water bill, there should be a phone number to call if you have any questions.

## In the Philippines, how much does a cubic meter of water cost?

For the second quarter of 2021, the MWSS RO has confirmed a tariff adjustment on customers’ water bills.

Based on its examination of the Concessionaires’ FCDA proposals, the MWSS Board of Trustees (BOT) has approved the MWSS Regulatory Office’s (RO) recommendation to adopt the 2021 2nd Quarter Foreign Currency Differential Adjustment (FCDA) effective 01 April 2021.

Manila Water Company, Inc., which provides water and wastewater services in the East Zone Concession Area, will impose an FCDA of 0.84 percent of its 2021 Average Basic Charge of Php28.52 per cubic meter, or Php0.24 per cubic meter. This is a Php0.05 per cubic meter increase above the previous FCDA of Php0.19 per cubic meter.

Maynilad Water Services, Inc., which serves the West Zone Concession Area, will charge a negative 0.41 percent FCDA on its 2021 ABC of Php36.24 per cubic meter, or negative Php0.15 per cubic meter. From the prior FCDA of negative Php0.14 per cubic meter, this represents a downward adjustment of Php0.01 per cubic meter.

The FCDA is a quarterly-reviewed tariff mechanism that allows concessionaires to recover losses or give back gains due to fluctuations in foreign exchange rates while making payments for foreign currency-denominated loans used to expand and upgrade water and sewerage services. It’s a correction mechanism devised by the MWSS RO to prevent under- or over-recovery as a result of currency movements.
