Each region has its own water company. To set up a contract the following information is required:
In the Brussels-Capital region the water supplier is the Intercommunale Bruxelloise de Distribution d'Eau (IBDE) / Brusselse Intercommunale voor Waterdistributie (BIWD)
To set up a contract with IBDE/BIWD fill in a form (available from the address above).
Note: the form must be signed by the new occupant and by the landlord or previous owner
If moving to a new property or one that has been left empty, a visit from a IBDE/BIWD agent will be required as the meter will need to be re-started. Water bills are sent out annually.
The water company for the region of Flanders is the Vlaamse Maatschappij voor Watervoorziening, VMW.
The water company for Wallonia is the Société Wallonne des Distributions d'Eau (SWDE).
Water bills are sent out every three months and must be paid within 15 days.
