Water tariff increased to 0.48 MNT per liter


The city’s water tariff has been increased to 0.48 MNT, up from 0.32 MNT per liter, to reduce the deficit of the Water Supply and Sewage Authority of Ulaanbaatar (USUG). The change came after a joint decision of USUG and the Agency for Fair Competition and Consumer Rights (AFCCR) made last week.
The raising of the tariff applies to all households residing in apartments, and businesses in Ulaanbaatar, Nalaikh District, Baganuur District and Tuv Province.
The water tariff hasn’t been raised at all in the past nine years, which officials say has held back development in the sector and affected water quality.
The raised tariff will be used for ensuring maintenance and the proper functioning of water distribution equipment and lines.
USUG has pledged to strictly monitor spending and the service quality of water distribution agencies as the tariff has been raised.
