Luvthesouth, it's 83 cents more per 100 cubic feet, with "the typical customer using 1000 cubic feet. That's $8.30 per my calculator.

I would like to be able to pay only for the water I use. We have water meters to record how much is actually used, but then the customer is put into a category of a minimum of 1000 cubic feet. It's the same with the trash removal contract. If I produce one gallon of trash, I'm still paying for 33 gallons of trash. If this was our electric or gas being charged like this, people wouldn't tolerate it.

Maybe it's time to go off the grid.

the additional $.83 is a bargain considering the value you get when you realize each cubic foot of water contains 7.48 gallons. try finding that value at Sam's club.

Question... Is the city makin money from the interest off of all of our water deposits? If I die... where will my deposit go? Most utilities keep your deposit for about a year, and then return it with added interest. Maybe I'll ask the mayor...
