The Dénia Water Council, chaired by the mayor, Vicent Grimalt, has agreed to postpone the payment of the water bills issued in May, June, July and August to all those holders of a contract of the municipal service of domiciliary supply of drinking water whose activity is the hospitality industry (restaurants, hotels, campsites, etc.). ) that request it. The first payment will be deferred until one month after the end of the alarm state, and always before September, and the second receipt will be collected at least one month later.
This agreement is included in the package of extraordinary economic measures agreed among all the groups of the Municipal Corporation with the aim of helping to offset the economic and social impact of the crisis caused by COVID-19.
The 424 registered hospitality establishments in the city can benefit from this measure, whenever they request it.
Applications must be submitted by email, before May 24, to the address firstname.lastname@example.org, specifying in the subject of the message "Postponement hospitality". The request must be made by the owner of the business, indicating his ID and providing a water receipt or the customer code of the establishment. Aqualia undertakes to respond to the request in a maximum of 5 business days.
On the other hand, the City Council of Dénia and Aqualia recall that there are aids and mechanisms to guarantee access to drinking water and sewerage for vulnerable families who cannot take over the payment of the water bill, a previous report issued by the Social Services of the townhall. These measures, in force since long before the health alert situation, were taken to provide economic coverage and avoid cutting off the supply of drinking water to people who are in a situation of special vulnerability.
