Big Sewer Bill For Zero Water Use!
Monday, August 30, 2010 – With another water rate increase on the horizon, KUSI's Michael Turko exposes a bizarre water case tonight, Turko says a San Diego man is using almost no water at all, but his bill is over 80-dollars a month.
Here's a guy who's remodeling a vacant house and just needs one water faucet outside to mix concrete and clean tools. Even so, the city of San Diego insists he has to pay a sewer charge, and he can live with that. But instead of basing that sewer charge on his current water use, no matter where the water goes, they want more. They want a flat rate that will knock your socks off! It ain't right!
