I have been living in Broward county about 3 months now and what I used to pay for water within a 3 month period in Miami-Dade I pay monthly here. The house in Miami-Dade was bigger and we were living with one more person. Now we have a smaller house, only us 3, and our bill is consistently in the high 50s and low 60s ; what I used to pay every 3 months in Miami-Dade. The sewer charges are always double the water cost. Why? So has anyone else lived in both counties and can attest to whether water services are more expensive in Broward compared to Dade?

I don't know, but my sewer charge in Miami is close to double the water charge. It's been that way since after Hurricane Andrew. Try turning all the water off and go outside to your meter and see if it's moving. Maybe you have a leak?

Nope no leak. Just found out that they have a dumb base charge in Broward where you get charged like 38 dollars even if you don't use any water. I also then looked up Miami-Dade and found out they got among the cheapest water in the country.

Miami is one of the cheapest but they also have a base charge and it is kind of high for not consuming any water.

You'll probably make up the difference with the 6% sales tax in Broward vs. the 7% in Dade.

Even in rich areas like sunshine ranches/royal oaks there are no water or sewer bills.
