Fitzmaurice in warning to Irish Water: ‘Don’t use farmers as scapegoats’

 

 

Deputy Fitzmaurice says bills for water usage for farmers, issued by Irish Water, have increased substantially due to a new charging system which the TD claims “breaks an agreement made with the farming organisations some years ago.”

  Deputy Fitzmaurice is calling on farmers to check their bills to ensure that they are not being overchanged.

  “Farmers who have land in a number of locations heretofore paid one service charge for the meter, and then they paid for water usage at all the locations. But now, Irish Water, who have taken over the billing for farmers – as they are treated as commercial accounts – is apparently charging the service charge for all the locations and it is adding hundreds of euro to the water bills for some farmers.

  “This flies in the face of an agreement which was made with the farm organisations some years ago. This is a totally unacceptable move, and farmers should not be used to replace funds that the Government will have to raise in order to pay for water services” he said.

  Deputy Fitzmaurice said he has contacted Irish Water about this situation.

  “I am asking farmers to look carefully at their water bills to see if this extra change has been applied, and I will be following up this as a matter of the most extreme urgency with Irish Water. We cannot allow a situation whereby farmers are used as scapegoats to raise revenue” he concluded.
