The new national water tariff system was set out by the Regulatory Authority (ARERA) and approved by Ato 2 Lazio Centrale Roma Auditor Assembly the past November. The aim was to start an important simplification and unification process of the water tariff system on a national level, introducing new criteria able to distribute actual consumption costs more equally (for example, protecting large families), limit waste and protect the environment and water supplies.
Acea Ato 2, as other water providers, applies the new tariffs approved in compliance with the current regulations.
The main changes apply to resident domestic customers whose tariffs is calculated taking into account the number of family members. Tariffs (fixed and variable) is calculated based on the number of family members self-declared by the customer. This allows to determine tariffs based on the real needs of each family.
The amounts due in consideration of the new tariffs can be charged via a credit or debit system and are normally contained.
In the case of debit payments, customers can always postpone the deadline or request to pay in interest-free installments by calling the toll-free number 800 130 331.
Payment in installments is automatically applied to significantly large amounts.
In compliance with the national legislation, during the introduction stages of the new tariff, each family is temporarily considered to be formed of three members (national average).

If no self-declaration is submitted, Acea Ato 2 – in accordance with the applicable national legislation– will calculate tariffs based on the average family size (three people).
The new tariff structure complies with the national limits set by the TICSI. The new tariffs will allow large families and single-member families to reduce and adjust bills to reflect the real needs of each family. Customers will have to make sure they maintain their consumption levels within the “right” limits, i.e. an average consumption of approximately 60 cubic meters/year per person (the ATO2 average and a daily consumption of approx. 164 liters per day per person).
