Salama stated that the new billing system will be implemented by the end of March 2023, replacing the current practice of issuing bills every three months.

He added that monthly billing has already been implemented in some regions, such as Aqaba Governorate and some other areas.

He confirmed that "water prices will not be raised" for subscribers, and the current tariff will remain unchanged.

According to Salama, every three months, there are some problems and imbalances regarding objections, renewals, and the cost of bills for citizens.
