AMMAN — Minister of Water and Irrigation Mousa Jamani on Thursday said he supports increasing water tariffs and returning to quarterly water bills.

During a visit to Irbid Governorate, he explained that the increase in the bill will be proportionate to water consumption and will not impact the low-income bracket whose consumption does not exceed 18 cubic metres.

The increase will affect those whose water consumption exceeds 30 cubic metres during the designated period, the minister said, noting that the Cabinet is the party with the jurisdiction to approve the increase and the billing system.
