I am wondering, assuming you do NOT have a septic tank...how much is your wastewater/sewage charge per month? I assume you have this charge right? I am talking to Doc.cathy and she doesn't think she has this charge...someone tell me it's not a midwest thing? Jaimie is saying in Louisianna, they get charged too..so ..where you are...do you get charged?!


sorry for such an off weird topic! :lol:

We get charged for sewer too. But it's never the same amount, it depends on your water consumption. For 4,000 gallons the sewer charge is 13.40 $ and the water is 13.60 $. For 3,000 gallons it falls down to 5.55 for sewer and 6.95 for water.

I just grabbed a random month and it was 33.08. I looked to compare some other bills...my sewer charge is usually somewhere around 10.00 more than my actual water usage charge.

I don't think this counts because we live in an apartment but we have a sewer charge (water is free). Ours changes every year. In 2002 it was $25 a month, in 2003 it was $23.50 and in 2004 it was $24.50. I can't find any stubs for 2005 (will have to dig them up later. I think it's strange that it was $25 and then jumped down to $23.50 the next year. Then again that was when we got new management and our rent jumped up from $670 to $697 to $711. Anyway we still pay $735.50 so I assume the sewer is still $24.50. We didn't get a rent increase this year.

I'm in Tucson, Arizona, we also have a City Sewer Charge that is based on your water consumption. This is a real rip off in the summer months when we do lots of watering outside, that water does not go into the sewer system. Our City also use to have free garbage pick up. They just imposed a $14 a month fee that goes on (get this) your WATER BILL. I called and told them I only use trash pick up once a month and I don't want them picking it up anymore, I'd go to the landfill myself. They refused to take it off my bill, they told me if I did not pay it (irregardless of how little I use it) they were going to shut my water off!! What a rip-off, so now I put the trash cans out on the curb every week. Sometimes they don't even have anything in them!! But they still have to stop and "empty them". We also have to recycle or the "trash police" come and fine you (I don't mind doing the recycling). Tucson sucks!!

I live in Concord Township, Ohio. My water/sewage bill is about $160.00 every 3 months. Garbage pickup is $35.00 per month. When my 2 children lived at home my water bill was way higher - don't use as much water now. We have plenty of water in this area...Lake Erie and loads of ground shelf water but we still have to pay lots.

This is how our bill reads:

Water Availability 14.05
Water Usage 8.46
Sewer Maintenance 9.26
Sewage Treatment 7.69
Storm Drain Maintenance 8.96
Trash/Recycling 18.43
Street Sweeping 1.20

The water part is usually higher but we've gotten so much rain we haven't had to use as much.
