Re: Re: Fwd: Price of Gas-OT

Kitty, those are the lowest water and sewer rates I've heard of in years.
You in the wetter parts of the country get to take advantage of the dilution
capacity of your larger rivers and streams.  Out west, sewage has to be
treated so that the effluent itself will support fish without stream
dilution, and it costs big bucks to do that.  Sounds like you must have a
ground water supply instead of surface water too--it's much cheaper that
way.  Water meters are installed for about $200, but some towns that are
encouraging conservation or that require universal metering install them for
free.  Well, not really, but it's absorbed by rates instead of being a
separate charge.
