Check for leaks, I have 4 people that live in my house and we do laundry everyday and showers for everyone, and mine is only around 40 to 45 dollars a month.

Mine was running anywhere from 80 to 120 and they called and had me check for leaks, and sure enough i had two and since having them fixed its back down to around 30 dollars a month, and the leaks were small and you wouldnt think it would cause that much of a problem but i could be nothing but youre toilet running a little and it can spike up bad!

If you do have a leak, you can usually show them proof and they can cut your bill down some for ya

I rigged my water meter so I could tell if they read it or not.

They don't read those water meters, My husband has put oil on ours where you could not even see the meter,just to see if they actually would read it..
And why do we have someone over our water dept that lives in Imboden, not to mention dumb as a box of rocks....And the worst part I think is when the water is yellow, and you can't wash your white clothes,and it smells like dirt,I also grew up in the country on well water, never was the lime as bad as good ole walnut ridge..........The idiots that run this down...

yeah my water bill went up to almost one hundred dollars on two different occasions they came and checked for leaks no leaks. ended up on both occasions they had overread my meter by 20,000 gallons no if i had just paid it or not said anything i imagine they would have kept charging me that they had no explanation for the overread except that mistakes happen. but from reading this is it really mistakes?? if it is they need to hire a new reader!!

You are right the lime is bad. My bill run at least 100.00 per month.When I lived in hoxie my bill was only 35.00 a month and it was better water.

If your meter is full of water to where you cant see the meter, you should request they ck for a leak, usually standing water around a meter indicates a leak! Call the water dept and ask for your meter to be ckd for leaks!!!
