We received our first water bill for the project house that no one lives in yet. The water is turned off in the basement, except if someone needs to use the bathroom. The bill is for the last 60 days and while I realized that the utilities would be a little more expensive at the new house, I wasn't quite expecting a bill this size.
I tried to call the water billing department, but they are closed on Saturdays, Due to New Year's Eve and New Year;s Day, we won't be able to deal with this until the middle of next week. It seems a long time away.
