Winning the Water Rates

August 30, 2008

We just got our council water rates bill. Didn’t want one. Didn’t ask for one. Just got one.

It’s got a graph of how our usage in the last few months stacks up against the same time last year and the city average. We moved into this house a few months ago, so the last year figure was for the previous owners. Young couple with a baby. Wouldn’t use much water, you’d reckon. Not so, apparently.

We are ahead by miles on both. We use two thirds of the previous people, and only half the city average.

Looks like it’s longer showers coming up.
