How is it that 30 unit master metered building is just billed 10,000 gallons when the article states that small users are 1,000 gallons. I might have failed math as a kid but I think 1,000 X 30 units would be 30,000 gallons.
Also, who knows how many users are in these multi units and how many get rented out with the possible use being much higher.
The only fair solution is to meter all services. It is not a big deal to put a flow meter on the water service line. The meter is placed just in line to monitor flow and report true gallons used.
That is the only fair way to all. Pay for what you use period. If you want to waste water then waste your own money.
The city should mandate that all water service lines be metered and then we have a true baseline for use and costs.
