CMWSSB fixed the traffic regulation for private sewer lorries ranging from Rs.650 to 1,500

The Chennai Metropolitan Water Supply and Sewerage Board (CMWSSB) has implemented tariff regulations for private operators offering sewage collection services. The fixed tariff ranges from ₹650 to ₹1,500, depending on factors such as the distance to the treatment plant and the location from which the sewage is collected.

This move has garnered patronage for private sewer lorries, as the regulated tariffs provide clarity and consistency in pricing. The CMWSSB aims to streamline and improve the efficiency of sewage collection services through this tariff framework. The new system ensures transparency and standardization in the pricing structure, benefiting both the service providers and the customers.

The fixed tariffs will help maintain fairness and competitiveness among private operators, promoting a healthy market for sewage collection services in Chennai. This initiative is expected to enhance the overall sanitation infrastructure and contribute to the effective management of sewage in the city.
