Hi, I am working on another water related article and need some data about how much your water bill is. If you could answer me one or all of the following questions, that would be great:

Where do you live?

How many people live in your household?

How much is your monthly / yearly water bill for how many gallons / liters / whatever your measurement is?

Thanks a bunch!

Where do you live? Westerville Ohio

How many people live in your household? 3

How much is your monthly / yearly water bill for how many gallons / liters / whatever your measurement is?

Monthy Water Billing

Sewer First 2 CCF - 2.00 units = $16.98

Sewer Over 2 CCF - 17.00 units = $ 87.55  Balance = $ 104.45

Water First 2 CCF - 2.00 units = $4.90

Water Next 1 CCF - 1.00 units = $2.21

Water Next 12 CCF - 12.00 units = $12.00

Water Next 85 CCF - 4.00 units = $4.00 Balance = $ 42.47 Total Monthly Billing = $ 146.92

The sewage fees is what gets us here where I live. Gotta pay for the infrastructure delivering and receiving it all.  It is so high because it factors in the out doors usage, say as in landscape watering systems, pool and hot tub maintenance and filling, was a hot summer Surprised I use a lot of water I guess, try to be conservative...

New Hampshire

I have not lived here very long, but just got a 3 month bill (actually 3.5 months) for $150. 

Total gallons used  20,944

There are 2 of us in the house.

I've had a well - free water - all my adult life so this is new for me.

I look forward to your article!

Can you wait till I get my next water bill? This isn't the kind of information I keep in mind.

Sure, as I said that article needs a lot of research first ;-)
