Hello, I would like to know where I can find any article with figures related to water pricing/cost of water in Europe divided by countries and if there are more than one depending on the year of the survey.

It seems I am unable to find them by myself. Thank you in advance!

Dear mramirez,
Unfortunately the European Environment Agency does not compile statistics of water prices and tariffs across Europe. However, I have compiled below some sources of information you might find relevant:

Some information on the tax component of water prices can be found in the OECD-EEA database on economic instruments.[…]/oecd-eea-database-on-instruments

Comparative tables of water prices can also be found in publications from OECD such as:[…]fiers&st1=9789264083462

The European Federation of National Associations of Water and Wastewater Services (eureau) is the sector organisation for utilities such as water services in Europe.

You can find information about demand management and incentives pricing at[…]_and_incentives_pricing.pdf

The International Water Association
The International Water Association publishs statistics on water price in big cities located in different countries. These statistics are available at:[…]/statistics-and-economics.html

I hope you may find this information useful.
