There could be several reasons for an unusually high water bill. Here are some things to check:
1. Do you have a leak? Check indoor and outdoor faucets, toilets, pipes under sinks and check your yard between the meter and the house. Leaks are the NUMBER 1 reason for unexpectedly high water bills. Find out how to check for and fix leaks at

3. Have the water rates increased and you were caught unaware?
