Price of water

Some people are worried that water price will increase if we have to pay more for water from Johore.

Let me present some figures so that people get the facts before they make wild statements.

Currently, we pay 3 sens per 1,000 gallons. The Johore statement government ask for 50 sen, or S$0.17. It is an increase of $0.16.

Do you know how much we are paying for water in Singapore now?

From 1 July 2018, we pay $3.69 per cubic meter, or $13.65 per 1,000 gallon (for the second tier after 40 cubic meter).

The cost of treating water is probably less than $2 per 1,000 gallon.

Don't worry. The price of $13.65 is very high already.

The government does not need to increase the water price, even if they have to pay $0.16 more to the Johore government.

But, who knows. We do have a greedy government, right?
