Water board fees increase up to 75%
Single person households will be confronted with an average 17% increase in water board charges this year, while family fees will go up 5%, according to calculations by the home owners lobby group VEH.
But the Hunze and Aa waterboards are increasing their charges by 75% and 63% respectively, the VEH says.
The Netherlands has 27 water boards which are charged with managing ground water levels, maintaining dykes and cleaning waste water.
