Community clean water services are critical in remote rural areas near forests because they provide necessary water for residents. This basic service is mostly organised by the Community Water Service Groups. (CWSGs). The objectives of the study are to investigate (1) the benefits to local communities from this service and (2) the sustainability of this service. The study used a survey method involving 100 family respondents from 4 CWSGs. This study was carried out in the Besai Watershed, West Lampung, Indonesia. Objective 1 was measured by counting the volume of water received daily, service charges, and consumer surpluses. Objective 2 was analysed by measuring 5 aspects of sustainability, namely: (1) institutional, (2) financial, (3) participation, (4) technical, and (5) environmental aspects. The study suggests that families received 2545 l per day of water, while the average consumption of water per family was 771 l per day. Therefore, a surplus of 1,700 l per day was obtained by the family. The fee for water ranged from IDR80,000 to IDR100,000 annually per family, suggesting hefty surpluses gained by the community. The study concluded that 5 aspects of sustainability are perceived very positively by members suggesting that the water services are sustainable. Keywords: water services, sustainability, benefits.
