Since the early 2000s a policy of attracting private operators to public utilities, which should help to increase productivity, reduce costs, and as a result, reduce utility prices, takes place in Russia. The aim of the study is to identify the relationship between institutional arrangements and pricing of water and sanitation services. Statistical and cluster analysis was applied to empirical data on water utilities in the 13 largest cities. There were the differences in the level and dynamics of prices for water supply and sanitation in the group of public utilities and public private water utilities.
