The Directive 2000/60/EC of the European Parliament and the Council establishes a framework for community action in the field of water policy. This standard indicates in its article 9 that member of the States shall take account of the principle of recovery of the costs of water services, including the environmental ones. According to this legal framework, municipal water supply entities must generate information about their general costs and, more particularly, about their environmental costs and other environmental items. So, in this paper we focus on the cost of desalinated water, which is one of these entities main outputs.
