Why is there a “minimum bill” even if you use no water?
Even if you use no water you will receive what is called a “minimum bill.” Even without consumption the water (and sewer) pipes must be kept in proper functioning condition 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and 12 months a year in order to be ready for the instant when one has use for those services. The labor and materials required in maintaining that immediate service level does cost money. Those expenses must be jointly shared between all potential users.
