Important note on new charges
Irish Water's new non-domestic tariff framework for business customers was due to come into effect on 1 May 2020. This was deferred as a result of the current COVID-19 emergency. The decision was taken by Irish Water with the support of our economic regulator, the Commission for Regulation of Utilities (CRU) and the Department of Housing, Planning and Local Government. No decision has been made on a new date for the implementation of the new charges, we will publish further updates in due course.
