We need to be aware of the new water meters the county is now using. I've been in my residence 10 years and my usage has always been between 3 & 5 thousand gallons per month. Now, the water dept. says I've used 16000 last month. I haven't watered my lawn or garden, and there are only 2 of us living here. I keep trying to tell them this is not accurate, but they insist it is. I have no leaks, and the meter does not move unless water is turned on somewhere. We are at work 8 - 10 hours a day, when no water is used at all. Does this make sense to anyone? What are we to do? They have a monopoly on the water, and can cut us off anytime they want, which is really illegal. So if you get a bad meter that is calibrated wrong, what recourse do you have? We may be getting the short end on this one.
