LA County - water bill warning.

For those who may have not paid much attention to the water bill just to see high fees around 800 to 1000. Be aware, they do this stupid crap where they don't read your meter for a few month, and after they read the meter on the last month they bill all your water as if you used it all in one last month.

The issue here is because it makes your water usage high in one month, it puts you into higher billing rate per gallon. If it was spread over several month (since you did use it over few month), it would be literally half the price because of how they tier the water usage pricing. Total scam. Spoke to our councilman, he's useless as usual. Have to end up calling their customer service, get some run around, after that they adjust it with the usual "oops - new billing system, not our fault".

Be aware.

Going forward it probably makes sense to snap a picture of your meter at a same day every month.

It's only fair to spread it out since the last meter read.

They are crooks. They will just find another way to rip you off. Hey, someone needs to pay their pensions.
