This could be translated into increments of accounts in case of surpassing the established set of limits, so are you calling to pay attention to your drinking and drinking accounts.
The superb tax, in the majority of sanitary companies, is applied as 40m3, as defined in each of the respective tariff regulations. This means that it is applied to the m3 of water consumed after the established monthly limit. In the case of average consumption in the unprepared period of more than 40m3, only the consumption in m3, which exceeds its own average, is affected by overcrowding.

This is a phenomenon that is no longer seasonal and has become a reality that we have to face, so the call must be concerned with water not only in these maximum periods, but also throughout the year "said the Superintendence of Sanitary Services, Ronaldo Brown.
This summit period only applies to the regions of Arica and Tarapacá, to the Araucanía. The rest of the south zone has a flat index without a limit of overcrowding.
