WE ARE CHARGED FOR 5,000 GALLONS OF WATER EVERY MONTH, WHETHER WE USE IT OR NOT. LAST TIME WE WENT OVER BY 1,000 GALLONS, OUR BILL DOUBLED.
WHY ARE WE NOT GIVEN SOME TYPE OF CREDIT WHEN WE USE ONLY 3,000 GALLONS IN A MONTH?????
HOW CAN WE BE CHARGED FOR SOMETHING WE DON'T USE?
CAN SOMEONE EXPLAIN THIS TO ME?

every municipality does it this way. you pay a minimum. same as nicor, com-ed, etc. coal city, braceville, carbon hill, wilmington all the same. diamond's water is the best in grundy county with the RO system running. Trust me. Better than morris, wilmo, 100 times better than braceville or godley. it's very clean. I know the joliet water guy well. Joliet tests for 30 different wells. I think tests are done every 3 weeks

Just wait unti Kernc raises your taxes. This new water plant is going to be costly. Someone has to pay for it.
