**How to calculate your water and sewage bill**

**Clic here ****to open our simulator. **

Dear Customer,

Our fees will change from March 15th, aiming the adjustment of charging process established for Florianópolis, and now Jurerê Internacional too.

The main change is the extinction of the “Minimum Fee” of 10 cubic meters, whose value was R$ 45,19.

In the new model, the fee will consist of a fixed amount, referring to the availability of the Infrastructure, named Fixed Infrastructure Availability Fee (TFDI), whose value will be R$ 29.49, plus the variable amount according to the water volume consumed by the unit.

In summary, your account will be = TFDI (R$ 29.49 + Cost of the water consumed(s).

The cost of the sewage fee remains equal to 100% of the water fee.

This change aims to encourage conscious consumption of water.

Below is the table with the fees readjusted, in the different consumption ranges, for the water consuption from march 15th to april 15th and water and sewage bill for may 10th, 2020.

*Note: *

In Jurerê Internacional we practice two categories of fees: Residential and Commercial.

A building, can have both types of fees in one single bill, for exemple: a building that is both residential and comercial, the water bill is calculated according to the economy category and consumption ranges.

Now let’s see three practical examples of how calculate your water and sewage bill using the above table:

**Ex. 1. A home where the monthly consumption of water is = 3 m³**

Calculation: 01 Economy – Range 1 = 3m³ x R$1,96 = R$ 5,88

water billing value = R$ 29,49 (TFDI) + R$ 5,88 = R$35,37

Water and sewage total bill = R$35,37 (water) + R$35,37 (sewage) = R$ 70,74

*OBS:** Remember that your sewage fee is equivalent to 100% of the water consumption.*

**Ex. 2. A home where the monthly consumption of water is = 32 m³**

Calculation: In this case we have 01 Economy in 3 consumption ranges.

Range 1 –10 m³ x R$1,96 = R$ 19,60

Range 2 – 15 m³ x R$ 9,11 = R$ 136,65

Range 3 – 7 m³ x R$ 12,18 = R$ 85,26

water billing value = R$ 29,49 (TFDI) + R$ 19,60 + R$ 136,65 + R$ 85,26 = R$271,00

Water and sewage total bill = R$ 271,00 (water) + R$271,00 (sewage) = R$ 542,00

*OBS:** Remember that your sewage fee is equivalent to 100% of the water consumption.*

**Ex. 3. A building with 12 apartments and 4 stores with total consumption of = 432 m³ (mixed economy)**

Calculation: In this case we have 12 residential economies and 4 commercial economies.

432 m³ / 16 economies = 27 m³ – This is the consumption of each one of the economies:

Range 1 Resid – 12 Resid. Econ. = 10m³ x R$ 1,96 = R$ 19,60

Range 2 Resid – 12 Resid. Econ. = 15 m³ x R$ 9,11 = R$ 136,65

Range 3 Resid – 12 Resid. Econ. = 2 m³ x R$ 12,18 = R$ 24,36

Total residential: R$29,49 + R$ 19,60 + R$ 136,65 + R$ 24,36 = R$ 210,10 x 16 economies

Total residential: R$ 210,10 x 16 economies = R$ 2.521,20

Range 1 Commercial – 04 Comercial Econ. = 10m³ x R$ 4,34 = R$ 43,40

Range 2 Commercial – 04 Comercial Econ. = 17 m³ x R$ 12,18 = R$ 207,06

Total commercial: R$ 29,49 + R$ 43,40 + R$ 207,06 = 279,95

Total commercial: R$ 279,95 x 4 = R$ 1.119,80

Water total bill = R$ 2.521,20 + R$ 1.119,80 = R$ 3.641,00

Water and sewage total bill = 2x R$ 3.641,00 = 7.282,00

*OBS**: Remember that your sewage fee is equivalent to 100% of the water consumption.*
