One-Minute Brief on the Adams County Water Bill Controversy

Jason Gruenauer with ABC 7 News reports that many homeowners in Adams County are seeing the price of their water bills skyrocket - as much as $1,000 or more. Gruenauer quotes one homeowner: "It's kinda hard to go through 44,000 gallons in a month" (as much as three swimming pools, apparently), but that's what showed on this homeowner's water bill.

Here's your one-minute brief:

  • Homeowners generally claim that their water bills have spiked for no apparent reason.
  • South Adams County Water, however, says that it is just billing based on how much water has flowed through the meters.

And this has happened before.

In fact, it seems to happen every few years or so, based on a Google search that turned up incidents of water bills spiking back to 2011 and 2009.

The Water District weighs in:

"We've looked at our meters, we've looked at our systems and we haven't seen anything on our side. So that leads us to believe that it's isolated incidents based on a leak or increased use for some reason or another."
