Gosh, I'm almost embarrased to post mine BUT I'll explain everything that goes on the bill......
We have city sewer so we are charged not only for how many gallons of water we use, but those gallons are also used to figure the sewer charge and then those totals are taxed. We also pay on our bill a $9 per month fee for reclaimed water (used for sprinkler systems), a fee for yard trash removal, a fee for trash pickup, and a fee for recycling pickup.
Last month I paid (for the previous month's usage) $64.59
This month I paid (for last month's usage) $59.44
I was really surprised that the bill was lower this month. Usually we stay right in the $64 range every month. I actually expected this latest one to be more because we had landscape curbing put in our front yard and they had to use our water to mix the cement while they were here working.
