WORLD WATER COST SURVEY

2001

The following information is from the National Utility Service's International Water Cost Survey conducted in 2001.  These costs are only the annualized amortized cost of water production and delivery infrastructure plus the annual operating and maintenance costs.  They do not include any cost for the purchase of water as a natural mineral resources.  Therefore, when one talks about the cost of water, it is not really the cost of the water but the cost to deliver it.
