Bulgarian capital Sofia's water utility Sofiyska Voda has issued a statement, responding to accusations of overcharging its customers due to the use of a wrong tariff.

"On November 21, 2011, Sofiyska Voda was issued a statement of administrative offence over wastewater treatment services rendered to a legal entity customer. The company has presented its stance on the matter in a notice of objection sent to the State Commission for Energy and Water Regulation (DKEVR). So far, no information has arrived about a penal ruling issued on the basis of the administrative offence statement," the company said in a Tuesday statement.

Earlier on Tuesday, DKEVR member Milena Milanova announced that Sofiyska Voda had been overcharging bank offices by BGN 0.20 per cubic meter, the water treatment tariff for industrial enterprises.

She explained that the violation had been revealed during a random check and that he company had been issued a statement of administrative offence worth BGN 200 000.

Asked to comment on the case, DKEVR Chair Angel Semerdzhiev expressed hopes that the water utility would refrain from such practices in the future.
