Why Waste Our Money
It's that time of year again - you irrigate your lawn, or water your garden, wash your car, the kids are running under the sprinkler and your water and sewer bills soar along with the temperature. But where does the water go It seeps into the ground, yet you continue to pay sewer bills as if it went down the drain inside your home or building. If water is pumped to your home or building, but doesn't enter the sewer system, you can stop throwing your money down the drain by installing a separate sub-meter, which registers water that doesn't enter the sewer system. Why play fair and charge customers for the amount of water and sewer that they actually use It's my understanding that only Grasonville has allowed the use of sub-meters. As a resident of Centreville, I believe their deaf-ear policy is ridiculous. The town of Centreville refuses to adapt to reality. Technology is advancing exponentially, but the town of Centreville chooses to take the easy way out and scam their residents and business owners into paying for a service that they're not receiving. The Centreville way is too assume residents and business owners are uneducated and they won't know the difference when they pay their quarterly utility bill. I believe the sub-meter program should be offered to customers in order to obtain a reduction on the sewer portion of their bill. Power is in numbers, especially when it involves fraud, waste, abuse, money, and the local media. Families and business owners are economically stretched like taffy. Please consider our concern and propose the authorization to implement the use of sub-meters in Queen Anne's County.
