First question: How often do you flush? Second question: Do you think you're getting your money's worth?
Montgomery Township officials obviously felt that many residents were not getting their money's worth when it comes to their sewer bills. After all, sewer usage is based on how much water you run down your drains - but all residents had been paying one flat fee of $850, no matter how may times they flushed or how long they showered.
Montgomery's new billing system, which went into effect January 1, is based directly on how much water is used at each home. Now, about 70% of residents should be paying under $850 - some as low as $541. High end users - unquestionably those who let the water run while shaving or brushing - could pay as much as $1562.
This seems fair to me, and could conceivably lead to water conservation - always a good idea.
Good job Montgomery. This idea gets four out of five plungers on the happy bathroom scale!
