I moved here a couple of months ago and I'm wondering if $42 a month for "sewer only" is the norm for the Phoenix area. This is my bill in Queen Creek for a 1350 sq. foot house and I live by myself. This seems a little high for me and my water is handled through another utility company. I'm a little bothered that there is no itemization of charges - just a note that says "sewer" and the amount - no explanation of charges.

I'm only renting in Queen Creek and plan to buy in the very near future. I'm thinking that the higher-than-normal utilities in this area are enough reason to move closer to town. I'm guessing that the more foreclosures and vacant houses in Queen Creek, the more those of us in this area are going to be paying to keep the utilities going. Am I off the mark on this assumption?

Our bill is between $10.00-$20.00 a month. It's added to our water bill. There is 2 people in our home and we live in Central Phoenix. Not sure if that is normal or what the average is, but that is our average.

That seems pretty high. Are you in Maricopa county or Pinal? That might be the difference.

I'm in Pinal and the utility company is Johnson Utilities. I feel like I'm paying double what I should be paying. My water is with H2O and my bill has been running about $12-$15 a month.

I have a 2000+ sf house in the Town of Queen Creek. With two people living in the house, our combined water and sewer bill is less than $40/month, including the water used to compensate for the evaporation of our pool water. Our water company is H2O, Inc.

Who is your sewer with? This is confirming my thoughts that I'm being taken for a ride. $42 for sewer only is highway robbery.

Uggh... something is not right here. Everyone I've talked to has sewer bills that run - on average - less than 1/2 of what I am paying.

Angry Johnson Utilites = RIP OFF!

I bought a house here in Queen Creek (Pinal County) three months ago and was shocked when I received my bill from Johnson Utilities. I have about the same size house as yours and I also live alone. I was expecting my bill to be under $20 but I am also paying $42.00 a month.

I called Johnson Utilities and was told that is what I will be paying every month - regardless of how many times I flush the toilet, take a shower or run the dishwasher. I could go on vacation for a month and still come home to a $42.00 bill!!!
