Someone said :
perhaps the low compliance rates are that the form hasn't reached many yet... We didn't get ours so im guessing noone on our estate did either...

I've the form in my glove box for nearly a month now. Filling it out is on my to do list, but I don't know when.

Better hurry, before it gets sticky and you'll have to send it back in that state?

How many households, of the approx 500,000 that registered. Are households with a well and/or tank, If you say 300,000 at least and it is probably more? Then only, 200,000 are customers and that is not good for IW. They have, or will have lost this one and the Government should resign now!

I don't think that on average 3 in 5 houses have access to a well or tank???

Yes but how can you have a decent service that was dependant on revenues generated by excise taxes? There are people can't drink their water, pipes bursting every time there is a bit of cold weather, lack of supply any time the reservoirs can't keep up with the demand. The fact is they weren't spending enough money on it even during the good times, and now that general revenue has significantly dropped the money is not there to pay for it anymore.

People have had a tax reduction overall and will get more over the next 2 years hopefully. For someone earning 20K (16K under the actual average in this country) they will have 175euro more per year after tax cuts. With water charge of 175 minus the 20% tax relief you can claim back on it means the water charges are 140 leaving you 35 better off in a year. Not much I know but couldn't you argue that the money you were paying as per the 1997 act has been given back to you and now they are just taking it a different way?

In saying that I think Irish Water themselves have been an absolute balls at setting up the company, dealing with the public etc

Its the same as the Health service in this country, pump billions into it and get a 3rd class health system, this is the same with the water in the past, billions have been pumped into it and STILL there is 40% of water that leaks....... Simple solution would be to fix the pipes (this should have been done years ago) but it seems that money has been wasted here to put a plaster over the issues and hope they go away. Bad management is the issue here, the same as the Health system, we pay for a first class system but always seem to get a third world system in return.

And you are right Irish water are a shambles with the money they are wasting here and also all the bloody horror stories that are coming out about the company, there is nearly a new one every day!!! The latest being that Irish water has sent bank account details to Landlords after the tenant registered - I can't understand how this can happen and they simply get away with it
