Water bill woes.

January 25, 2015

Had you little missive from SA Water lately?

It ain’t a document that encourages any thriftiness in use of the not-too-attractive liquid that comes through the pipes.

  1. Chateau Grumpy has done all the right things for a number of years now. Four water tanks (total capacity 6ooolitres) keeps the gardens well watered, and, through a  complicated system of filters, gives us a potable liquid.
  2. SA Water bills us for $75.99 for water use.
  3. And then bills us $146.69 for “supply charge” and $184.30 for”Access Charge”
  4. Plus, of course $10 for the “Save the River Murray Levy”.
  5. Total: $340.99.

    The ‘Access Charge’ is for sewerage, Mike. The minimum charge is, I believe, $87.50 or thereabouts, then calculated on property value. Then again, maybe, your sewer is somehow connected to your blog and the quality of the comments it generates at times! (Couldn’t resist that – all in jest!)

      If you are right, then you are wrong. The outstanding output from Grumpy should actually receive a bonus reduction in my bill!!!

    I wasn’t questioning your output, Mike. Far be it for me to do that! Just the quality of SOME (me, excluded) of your correspondents!
