Why is my bill higher than my neighbors?

There is more than one thing to compare on the bill not just the dollar amount. Each household is different in the amount of water they use and what months they use more. What you pay for sewer usage for example can be very different than you neighbor if they leave for time in the winter when we are setting sewer rates. If you still think you are high, check for a leak. (See FAQ "How can I tell if I have a leak?")
