It was $3.41. Yes, that is for a whole month. We don't have garbage pickup, so that's it. I was so happy!

I should get my first one in June -- if I read the letter from the apartments correctly. I'm just waiting to see.... But $3.41? That's amazing.

$3.41?? I am envious!

Here in the land of crooks we pay $140 for water/sewer every 3 months. This is supposedly an average across the building but it's always the same amount that conveniently makes our rent check a nice round number. Then at the end of the lease year they come out and calculate the real usage and charge/return the difference. Last year we had to pay extra. Ugh.

Wow that is great! Just our city's 'fees' and misc charges are at least $20. We have to pay for sewer and trash pickup with our water bill, though. I am happy when ours is less than $50. lol

Wow, I wish my water was that low. Ours usually runs about 100.00-125.00 per quarter.

HA! You are all so lucky!

I pay at least $35 a month for water before I use a drop for administrative fees, then it goes up from there. My lowest bill is usually about $48 a month, and when I have to water a lot in the winter (dry season), it's about $75 a month. I'd love to have a well dug, but I can't afford it.

That's one reason I'm thinking seriously about getting rid of all of the plants, and minimizing my landscape to native, drought tolerant plants.

Ours is $25-$40 per month. It varies. Water is very expensive here. Some neighbours put in new sod and were watering it a lot. They had a $400 water bill.

Wow that is cheap, I would be so nervous that it is a misprint. The lowest water bill we ever had was $25 with out trash removal and stuff. But for it to be under $4, I don't see how that is possible..... I am assuming that you flush your toilet, take showers, wash dishes. I would call and make sure that amount is right, could be someone printed your bill up wrong and it should be $31.40. And if that is right congrats on being so frugal with your water consumption.

I actually heard some beauty expert on the Today show once say that it's bad for your skin to bathe every day, that you should shower every other day, and just wash the "pertinent areas" the other day. I have to wash my hair every day, or it won't do anything, but I might just try that bathing every other day. Still, my bill will never be below $48. Sucks. :sigh:
