Recognized Water Amount
The number of registered occupants in a property unit is of the utmost importance when determining the amount of water recognized for that unit. Every property occupant is entitled to 7 cubic meters of water per month (60.83 per day) at a low rate.
In accordance with the provisions of the Water Regulations (Determination of Known Quantity), 2016, the amount of occupants per property unit is needed to determine the recognized quantity per unit, determined by the listing in the Population Registry.
The directive is intended to make it easier for consumers and to save you time regarding any change in the number of occupants (birth, exiting adult children, etc.). Consumers who have not registered with the Population Registry at their current address may contact Mei Avivim to update the number of recognized occupants in order to continue benefiting from the reduced rate water allowance.
Pay attention! In the absence of a report, as well as in cases of one occupant, the recognized amount will be set for two persons.
Updating Number of Persons by a Home Consumer
If the number of occupants listed in the account does not match the number of occupants living in the property unit, contact Mei Avivim and notify us of the updated number by providing the Request Form to Update Recognized Tenants, as well as other required documents:
- Photocopy of ID Card that includes current address plus “sefach” (which contains the personal information of spouse and children).
- Photocopy of ID Card of all property occupants over 18 years of age.
Pay attention! If a declaration has been submitted in the past regarding number of occupants, then there is no need to re-submit it, unless the number of occupants residing in the property has changed.
