A large scale sewerage treatment plant has been proposed as a remedial action to the water pollution of Mahaweli River, the main source for domestic and industrial water in the Central hill country of Kandy, Sri Lanka. However, an appropriate tariff structure has not been properly studied and designed though it has been decided to charge sewerage treatment through increased water tariff. This study attempted to employ choice modeling approach to determine the appropriate tariff rate for sewerage treatment. Even though the results are inconclusive this study shows how choice modeling can be applicable to solve such a research question.
