Cost of water falls 10% in ten years

The cost of tap water has fallen by 10% for the average user over the past ten years, reports the Telegraaf on Wednesday.

The cost of a cubic metre of water (1,000 litres) has fallen by 5% over the same period. The figures come from comparative research carried out by the association of water companies in the Netherlands (Vewin).
They are in stark contrast to consumer association research two weeks which concluded that users are paying €25 too much for their water, the paper says.
