Childress water bill's

United States

#1 Sep 2, 2011
I have my own story about why I am posting this but my main objective is to see if I'm alone in this...
to begin with, We all know that the water quality in this county is very poor to say the least.
And just recently the Childress water dept had to issue returns on overcharges to its 5000 residents.
My ouestion is this,,,,
does anyone have complaints about there water bill and consumption? There is something going on in the department that makes me wonder if and or how much money these folks are stealing out our pockets? Here is my story..
my bill usually runs about 120 monthly with 4 people in the house, 3 women an 1 man.I understood that amount in the beginning, but for the last 3 months my bill was higher than ever and its been only I in the house. i have no leaks, don't water the lawn(at all),wash 2 loads of clothes weekly, take short showers.HELL! i have my hot water heater off, don't need it,, the water is already 90 degrees out the ground. Now that i complained to the main office my bill dropped a bit, but not even half.
I just don't get it! Maybe some one out there can enlighten me.. preferable someone who doesn't work for the city!
Not that bad

My bill has never been over the minimum which is around $72 a month. There's 3 in our house and 2 of us take long showers. I water my shrub twice a week, do 3-4 loads of laundry a week. Plus we give our dog a bath twice a week! I live in the southeast where we constantly have water leaks!!! I would do some checking into things. Read your own water meter and compare your usage to what they are showing. Who knows, maybe someone elses pipes are tied into yours and their usage comes out of your meter. Check with a plumber, have your water turned off at the meter and see if it still runs. There's something wrong somewhere. Good luck!

Better yet! The children can not drink from water fountains at school. If that's not a problem or a sign of misappropriation than I don't know what is.
