The average WTP for a sewer connection and treatment plant was less than 1% of income for most households. Respondents given time to think about their willingness‐to‐pay consistently bid less than those who were given no time to think. Average WTP showed little variation, whether calculated directly from discrete choice data using a logit model or from a final question on the households’ maximum WTP for a sewer connection.
