Now that everyone's had a chance to get used to their new (i.e. higher) water and sewer rates, it's time to take another survey of the kinds of hits to the pocketbook that people are seeing.

Mine remained the same, but I am in a MUD district, not the city of Houston. About $60

My water meter got changed out last month... not a peep out of COH, just a big dirt pile in the front yard next to the meter. My water bill went back down to normal for a dry-ish Fall. 150. I don't know what people do when COH meters goes haywire and they can't pay the bill. But I do know now what I'm in for next June and July...and guestimating the new penalties for having a larger property and house.

I'm going for a credit, but they are being difficult. I would still rather pay for what I use, vs. a MUD tax and than a usage-rated,monthly fee.

Mine is always over $120 in MUD 128 Sugarland. When I got the first bill I went nuts... Now is better, I just have to bring my own vaseline and take the "screw me position"

But in all honesty is crazy, my sewer rates are always $63 no matter how much water I use. I guess the surface water plans we're paying for brings all the water rates to those insane numbers.

I just put in a pool this month so let's see how bad is going to get...

Just got mine today for $235 in Houston. No pool, but we have a lot of foliage that we water, though not excessively (2 or 3 times per week). Is that right???

I live in the City of Houston as well. The city has increased its rates in recent years. My water usage fluctuates between 8000-19,000 gallons per month and averages around 11,000 gallons. Based on my most recent bill ($271 for 19,000 gallons), it appears that the city is charging $0.0143 per gallon once you combine: water, sewage and drainage. I don't know if there are fixed/variable components, or any tiered pricing, but hopefully this information is helpful. One other note, as a point of reference, this rate per gallon is 2-3x what my buddies in the Memorial Villages pay for their water. You would think that a large entity like the City of Houston could bring economies of scale to the water business, but apparently not.
