My bill was high after they put the new meters in also. They told me to do the food coloring thing in the tank on my toilets also. Guess what - they were right. My flapper was leaking and water was going down the drain all the time and I did not know it until then. A new $4.00 flapper just saved me many thousands of gallons in wasted water. The new meters caught it while the old ones were not sensitive enough to catch the slight continous leak. Put new flappers on all your toilets and see if your usage doesn't go down by several thousand gallons. It will save you money and arguing.

If u call the mayor he will fix the bill for you...It happen to us we went from $60 to $400 before they put the new meters in..WE also had it checked for leaks and there was none...WE called the mayor directly and he said with only 2 ppl living in a home a water bill should never be that high and he got the bill down to 75 dollars...Try calling him.....He will help you out......

that's o.k. to get your bill fixed, however the question is "Why was it so high to begin with?"

Neither - I learned a long time ago you get treated better when you act civilized instead of acting stupid. I had to admit to them I was wrong after I said I had no leaks.

By the way - I also hate the high water bills but at least I know what each line is. Don't like it but it is much more than simply water.
