THE GOVERNMENT HAS announced that households will be facing a water charge of €240 a year under their new plans for water charges.

Yesterday, Minister for the Environment Phil Hogan homeowners will get an allowance for free of 30,000 litres per year, with certain groups getting other allowance allocations.

He urged everyone to pay the charge, adding that the new charge could be reduced if people conserve water where they can.
