Sewage Charges

The Sewerage Charges are imposed by the Board to cover the investment cost for the construction of the Paphos Sewerage Central System and the Drainage Sewerage System (sewerage and drainage charges), as well as to cover the operational and maintenance cost of the Sewerage System (usage charges).

Three different charges are imposed:

  • Sewerage Charge: The sewerage charge is imposed on all immovable properties annually.
  • Drainage charge: The drainage charge is imposed on all immovable properties annually.
  • Sewerage System usage charge: It is imposed on every property which is connected or should be connected according to the relevant notification issued by the S.B.P informing the property on the obligation to connect to the system. The charge is calculated based on water consumption and is included in the Water Board’s bill statements sent to consumers periodically (three-month period) by the Water Board of the area in which the property is located or by the sewerage Board of Paphos.

Until 2016, the Sewerage and Drainage charges were calculated based on determined rates and according to the general valuation of the immovable properties located within the Paphos Sewerage Board’s jurisdiction which were published on January 1st 1980, as these are determined by the Department of Lands and Surveys. After the recent amendment of the Sewerage Systems Law, which was published in the Government Gazette no 4596, dated April 7th 2017 (Appendix I, Part I) No. N35 (I)/2017, the sewerage charges shall be imposed based on the most recent general immovable property valuation as specified by the Department of Lands and Surveys.
