Wierd. In the Boston area 4 years ago we were paying about $9/mo. for water and sewer combined. Little yard, so little watering.. but otherwise all the regular stuff for 2 adults. No real eye towards conservation given the figgers. I used to pay them $50 or $100 bucks at a time so I could carry a credit and save on stamps/checks/annoyance.

What used to crack me up when I lived in the boston area was the constant "water conservation" blah-blah. Fer crying out loud, if you dug 3" into the dirt you hit damp soil.

Be fearful when others are greedy, and greedy when others are fearful. Just another form of "buy low, sell high" for those who have trouble with things. This rule is not universal. Do not buy a 1973 Pinto because everyone else is afraid of it.

House in Phoenix, AZ. that is empty - but use water for irragation drip system-small back yard area. My bill is for sewer/water/trash and has been running around $127 a month, with no one living there. That hurts.
