What would you say an average water bill for a single family residence of 1500-2000sqft would be during different seasons in Fort Collins or Loveland?

The stuff that would run down the street, if there were not curb drains to stormwater systems and into fabricated and maintained swales / ground water recharge (which are separate from sewer, which is treated in a municipal plant).

Stormwater is a mitigation process for SF of paved (surfaced) streets, parking lots, and roof tops. Since Water is a Natural Resource (I.e. not OURS / yours to keep), there is a requirement that assures water returns to nature (and of course those downstream). Many states do no allow rainwater collection for person use. Water is a crisis in many states, especially visible issue in CO, NE, KS, and WY.
