How much is your water bill ?

My water bill is ALWAYS $45. This seems extremely high. All of my neighbors and friends pay about the same so it's not like I use an excessive amount of water. I'm actually very concious about my water usage. Today, my water got turned off because they said I didn't pay the bill. Yes, I should have remembered about it but I never recieved a bill and now they are going to charge me a $40 reconnect fee PLUS my original bill of $45. Wit tax it's gonna cost me $87 to restore service. This is outrageous !!! My mom and sister own a home and their water bill in the city is always about $12. What's up with that ?

  • I think ours is about $80 a month. But, we have a pool, a hotub,sprinklers, four bathrooms, and a child who LOVES to turn on the water without mommy knowing. She is really sneaky. I think its horrible for the reconnect fee's. Especially if you were only a few days late. :(

  • My bill is usually around 55..I live in NJ.
    3 adults and my 4 year old and two part time 6 year old...I think my bill is too high also.
    In the summer it was over 80 because of all the water slide stuff for the kids.

  • I'm shocked! I didn't even know that people had to pay for water. I have a well, we paid $4500 for it including the pump.

  • Wow I"d love my water bill to be only $45!!! Where I live we pay two separate companies. We pay the Sanitation District and Florence Water. Each bill is at least $150. We do get billed this every 3 months. Maybe you pay monthly. But this time one bill was $300!!!! We have had family members staying with us.

  • Wow, mine is $60 a month for city water - and we don't use a lot (we don't wash our cars or water the lawn much). You guys have it cheap!

    I live in Oregon.....we have good water though....my family lives in Utah and they have to have filters and softeners because their water is so crappy.
