Jul 26, 2013 Full story: News 12 WRDW

AUGUSTA, GA We're talking about thousands and thousands of gallons of water. In fact one resident who we've been told has not been home for 5 months got a bill showing he used enough water to fill an in-ground swimming pool.

FYI-This is also happening to me and I live in Augusta. My avg use is around 6,000 gals. Since May my use went from 6,000 to 12,000. Then in June went to 20,000 gals and in July went to 31,000 gals. Just received my latest bill and has 32,000 gals. No leak indicated thru my meter. Water dept gave me Richmond County's meter reader supervisor's number to call on Mon. I read my own meter today, now that I have learned how it is read and have only seen 7,000 gal used since the last reading. I told my water dept. that I will be monitoring by meter more closely to ensure it is being read correctly. I am just concerned who else in Richmond/Columbia counties are experiencing this issue.
