Water bill ours is just small post card type bill we are in fear of receiving this quarters bill do to new meter. We used to able to check for leaks by turning off our main if meter still turned we knew we had something drawing water. If you want to cut the use in half turn off your hot water heater amazed how fast your kids twenty minute shower turns into three minutes, not wasting water down the drain waiting for hot water. Somebody from the water board should come out to check the meter at least here they would. Small village here guy reads the meter is also my hay dealer and plow driver for my street. Best of luck with water board
