Belediyelerin topluma daha hijyenik, daha güvenilir içme sularını ulaştırmaları yıllar geçtikçe daha fazla önem arz etmektedir. Ancak bu amacı gerçekleştirmek belediyelerin çok büyük yatırımlar yapmasını gerektirmektedir. Bu yatırımları yerine getirmesinde toplumun katkısı da önemli bir yere sahiptir. Bu çalışmadaki amaç içme suyunda toplumun belediye hizmetlerinin iyileştirmesine yönelik katkıda bulunup bulunmayacağını araştırmaktır. Çalışmada hanelerin %65.7’sinin belediye suyunun 1 litresine 50-80 kuruş ödemeye istekli olduğu tespit edilmiştir. Ayrıca hanelerde meyve suyu tüketimi arttıkça içme suyu için ödeme istekliliği artmaktadır. Bunun dışında hanelerdeki birey sayısı arttıkça, hane reisinin eğitim yılı azaldıkça, hane reisinin mesleği esnaflık olunca, çeşme suyunun maliyeti arttıkça ve tüketicilere sunulan ödeme istekliliği fiyatı arttıkça tüketicilerin içme suyu için ödeme istekliliği azalmaktadır. Tüketiciler güvenilir içme sularına ödedikleri su faturasına yaklaşık 3.2 katı kadar ödemeye razıdırlar. Bu nedenle belediyeler tüketicilere daha hijyenik ve tadı daha güzel suları ulaştırmak için altyapı hizmetlerini iyileştirmesinde toplumun desteğini alabilir.

Over the years, it has been more important for municipalities to supply more hygienic and reliable drinking water to the public. However, municipalities need to make huge investments for achieving this objective. The contribution of society in carrying out these investments has an important place. The aim of this study to investigate whether the community can contribute to the improvement of municipal services in drinking water. In the study, it has been found that 65.7% of households are willing to pay 50-80 cents per 1 liter of municipal water. In addition, like fruit juice consumption increases, willingness to pay for drinking water increases. Also, increase of household size, decrease of the education level of household head, increase of fountain water cost and increase of water price that consumers are willing to pay cause consumer to decrease willingness to pay for drinking water.  Besides, having a profession as artisan decrease consumers’ willingness to pay for drinking water, too. Consumers are willing to pay about 3.2 times more for water bill to have reliable drinking water. Therefore, municipalities can get the support of society in improving infrastructure services for providing consumers with more hygienic and tastier waters.
