Water Metersave Program

I had the new water meter installed in September of 2014. When my payment credit ran out (rather quickly), I got a pretty large bill. Our usage averages about 50 gallons a day. Our bill figures to 169 gallons a day. Found out the water dept. automated phone system has a different meter number than ours. Was wondering if anyone might know a shortcut to the maze I am about to enter in order to correct this and adjust 6 months of billing.

  • me

    Dan, this is good to know since my credit also ran out rather quickly ...in only 2 billings! I'll have to check my meter numbers. Never thought of that. There are only 3 people in this house and 2 of those work all day so where is all the water being used? All I can suggest is to contact the media if you don't get very far in your efforts. Good luck to you and let us know how it turns out.

    I know that when they came and installed ours they showed me how to read the meter. There is something on the meter that can tell you if water is running or not. If it shows water is running (which also means the meter is running) when there is nothing on in the house then there is a leak somewhere. You may want to look at your actual meter and see if it's running all the time for a leak somewhere. Otherwise they overcharged you.

  • I will say nothing more

  • Sorry I gotta say one more thing. I just met ABC_123 and believe me SHE is not Paulino

  • Ohh...I have something to say:

    Excerpt from Editorial in Chicago Tribune, 2/25/15, p.18

    "Many of the incumbents who benefitted from the mayoral-linked political action committee Chicago Forward were successful. The committee dumped last-minute money and resources into more than a dozen races, including that of Ald. Michael Zalewski...; Zalewski cruised to victory along with Emmanuel allies...".

Fioretti did you think you'd win?

Fioretti, Don't you know when to drop out. Rahm 46% of vote so far. Fioretti 7%. 46 plus 7 equals 53% could have been to Rahm. Now more months to waste on campaign adds. Rahm your English negative campaign on Chuy let Non English speaking people see Chuys face all over the place and didn't have a clue if it was good or bad and Chuy learn how to say the word afford. Both F's should be heard.

  • @Merc- Fioretti's voters despise Emanuel. They would vote for Garcia, Wilson, or Walls before they'd cast a ballot for Emanuel.

    If you think the majority of Chuy's voters don't speak English you are as clueless as your buddy Emanuel.
