Does anyone have any info on East Central Baldwin County Water and Fire Protection Authority. I've heard that they are charging very high rates for there water and would like to know if that is true.

Yes, pretty high. Wife & I, both retired, have a water bill of around $55.00 per month and that's just water.

Yes it is extremely to high, I don't understand why they get to charge so much, I have checked out the rates of surrounding cities and ECBC is charging 4 and 5 times the rate that others charge. My family of four runs about $70.00 a month....and don't even think about washing your car or planting a garden it is $100.00 plus.

What we NEED is for the Public Service Commission of the State of Alabama to step in and REGULATE the hell out of these "private" gold mine companies. Sewer is a PUBLIC SERVICE not a private commodity. People like Clarence Burke have been having their way with the County and the Legislature for quite a while now. Seems the bill we voted on a couple of years ago that gives the County some authority to control prices can't seem to make it through the Legislature(Senate) because there seem to be too many people beholding to Mr. Burke.$55.00 water is high for two people, and $56.00 sewer is too high too. We are being used by these cesspools, and it appears that ALL our esteemed leaders are quite willing to let it continue. Anyone else think it's time for the sh.t to hit the fan?

My water bill runs between 75 - 85 a month.That's for 2 Adults and 2 children! In Oct 2009 it jumped up to over $200.00's and they fixed it..They said I had a leak or someone was stealing my water..I hired a plumber to come check things out for me,everything was ok on my end..I told ECBC what he had said and my bill seemed to go back down for all the months..For the year 2010 my bill went back to normal.I got my bill this month and it's starting all over again.It's $100.00's more and I had 2 less people in my house the last 2 months..I don't understand what is going on here but they are telling me I have a leak or someone is stealing my water..I think they are just rip off's and hard up for money..Who would I get to look into this? It's crazy,I am legally Blind and on a fixed income,I need help with this..
