Question for written answer
to the Commission
Rule 138
Biljana Borzan
 Answer in writing 
 Subject: Water pricing in Member States

Croatia is planning to introduce higher water prices for citizens from 2023 as a way to reduce losses in the water supply system. At a national level about 50 % of water is lost, with some local and regional systems losing up to 75 % of water before it reaches the consumer.

National and local governments are stating that the planned increase in water prices is an obligation imposed by the EU.

Does EU legislation impose higher water prices on Croatian citizens?

What does the Commission recommend as alternatives for achieving a reduction in water supply losses?
