Dayton Man Drowning in High Water Bills
DAYTON -- Rick Johnson said he is drowning in his high water bills.
"It's kind of beyond frustration. I just feel like I'm being ripped off," he said.
Johnson and his family have lived in the same Dayton home for 13 years. Every three months he pays his water bill, which is usually around $200. His last bill, however, was $903.93.
"I know I did not use $900 worth of water in three months. I'd have to have a couple of swimming pools, and I don't!"
Johnson had his home inspected for leaks.
"We checked the basement, we checked the line outside, and we dug up the front yard. There were no leaks," he said.
He said now he's stuck with a bill he can't pay.
"They will turn me off by the 15th if I don't make arrangements to pay this bill," Johnson said.
ABC 22/FOX 45 contacted the city who told us the water department used its meter technology and their readings showed Johnson's home used an unusual and substantial amount of water over the summer. And, the city said, most likely he has a leak, somewhere, and he may not even know it.
The water department has offered to give Johnson a payment plan over the next six months.
"I can give a little bit, that's the best I can do," Johnson said.
The water department suggests you always inspect your home for possible leaks you may not even be aware of, like a running toilet.
If you are a Dayton Water customer and have any concerns about your water bill, the city said to call the water and sewer review board at 937-333-3550 and ask to have a closer look at your bill.
