Higher than Normal Water Bill?
Could your increase be the result of more water consumption?
The summer months can increase your water usage. Use of pools, irrigation of lawns and gardens, washing your car, and visits from out of town family and friends can all have a significant impact on your water consumption. According to the American Water Works Association (AWWA) , water use can increase by as much as 50% in the summer months.
