Somebody who qualifies to vote and sign contracts and conduct all sorts of business in the adult world either forgot that thay weren't getting water bills, or more likely, thought they were winning free water because they weren't getting billed.

but for whatever reason, the water company finally twigged and calculated a bill that covered the whole amount owed.

let's post and then see how accurate this is...


good job, nostradumbass.

NutWrench: umrdyldo: $3,000 at $7/1k gallons = 428,000 gallons.  57,000 cu ft   238 ft cube.

Where did that go in a month?

Into the giant sinkhole that's probably forming under her house.


I must be a horrible human, because I really did think "next FARK headline is going to be '78 year old takes last ride, straight down' ", or something, with a pic of a house in a sinkhole.

xanadian: I guess it depends on the state and town, but where was the demarc for the water line?  I'm guessing AFTER the meter and the homeowner is responsible, like most places.

Anyway...good luck, lady.

Normally one is charged for the amount of water that the city has to process back into drinking water (the stuff that flows down your sewer line). This is why when you're filling a swimming pool you contact the water department so you don't get a giant water bill. So I'm not sure why she would have to pay this bill.
