Rates & Tariffs

Water & Wastewater Tariffs

Providing safe, treated water is expensive. Your water bill contributes to building and maintaining the water intakes, treatment stations, tanks and pipes which are needed to deliver water to you, the customer.

Water is a precious resource. Samoa Water Authority is devoted to using the funds it has prudently so the resource can be available for our children’s future, and so more Samoan families can have access to treated water, free from contaminants which can affect their health.

$7.50 for the first 15,000 litres each month

We have a three-tier pricing structure for domestic households, which makes water affordable for all Samoan families and which encourages people to conserve water as much as you can so we can sustain a safe and reliable fresh water supply to you and your children’s children.

We’ve also introduced ways to make it easier for you to pay, so that you don’t have to worry so much about remembering to pay your bill.
