Cambridge Water will increase its prices by 1.3 per cent, it has announced.

The rise for 2014/15 is below inflation and will see the average water bill rise to £128.90 from £127.18.

The company, which serves St Ives and some eastern areas of Huntingdonshire, said its charges – the second lowest bills for water in the country – were 31 per cent lower than the national average of £188.

Customer service director Rachel Barber said: “We know that our customers expect us to provide a high quality service at the lowest possible price. So, once again we have worked hard to keep our costs down. On average, the tap water we provide is under 35p a day.”

The firm added that the increase was necessary as it would help fund a £39million investment plan during 2014/15.

Anglian Water provides the wastewater services for Cambridge Water customers and a charge for this is added to the bill.
