It's considerably more expensive in Rethymno. Our last bill (20/9/12 to 8/2/13 - say 4.5 months) was for €64.50. Of this, €23.22 was for water usage (43 m3 @ 0.54 per m3), €31.20 was for "fixed water supply" and the balance VAT.
For a single quarter's bill, it seems unlikely that we would get either the water usage or the fixed charge down to anywhere near €8.
I suspect that we Rethymniotes are still paying handsomely for the new(ish) Amari dam.
