What is the average cost of water for a one BR apt in Clayton County...one person occupied? My neice is having a problem with her water bill. Her apartment complex has changed companies and her bill has more than tripled. She had been paying anywhere from 12-24 bucks. Now the water bill is 65.00. I told her to get someone to come out and see if there is a problem...but the company refuses to send someone out because they have not had the account long enough. I live in Henry county with 4 in the household and my water bill is between 35-42 dollars a month. I don't know what to tell her. Any suggestions?

The problem with an apartment is that usually there is no individual metering on a per apartment basis. What the management company does is splits the bill and apportions it by the number of people or the square footage. She could be paying for other people's waste and usage.

wow that is insanely high. I live in a 1 bedroom apt in Atlanta and my water bill is $5.00 a mth.
Not even when I lived in a large 3 bdrm house was my water ever that much. I would continue to complain until someone did something about it.

That sounds like an apartment problem. My bill rarely got above 40 and that is with watering the lawn back in those days. Perhaps Clayton County is the first to charge more for water since we aren't using as much....

I just got thru talking to my neice and she said she had been on the phone all day with the water company and the mgmt office. The water company can't do anything until the mgmt looks into it. Maintenance came over and found that her toilet was running very quietly. She said the guy dropped something in the tank and the water in the bowl turned colors. Sooo the water company and the building finally admitted there was a problem...but still they won't be able to do anything for her for another couple readings. After the monitoring they will credit her account. I knew there had to be some type of problem cuz water bills generally are not that high. I know she feels better knowing that she won't be paying that much every month.

I thought maybe this was the problem:
