    Ours is $200- $300 each bill with 5 of us.

    Have you tried turning everything off and check your meter to see if it is still running?

    No I haven't

    But just noticed on my bill 3 different charges

    The water use charge
    Water residential
    Sewerage residential

    As a renter do I pay for the last one (sewerage) ?? I'm in WA if that makes a difference

    I've never looked before just payed what the owner has asked for with next rent

    The WA water bills have changed. They now lump the water use charges and rates charges in all together on one bill, so as a renter you shouldn't be paying the whole bill, only the water use charge.

    Instead of sending one big bill in July for the rates, they now send a bill every 2 months which will include the water use charges and 2 months portion of the rates charges.

    Haven't bothered answering how much our water bill is because we have a huge rain water tank, so we only use about $20 of mains water

    I'm not in WA, but just asking out of curiosity; does this mean you can't pay your rates annually and get a (slight) discount?

    $260 with 7 ppl and 7 pets.
    We also have a water tank but that's only used for the w/machine, toilets and back yard hose....need to get it changed to do the dishwasher and front hose too.
