Aquarion — the elegantly named local water company — recently sent a notice to customers.
“We are pleased to inform you…” it began.
Sweet! What was coming? News of a rate decrease?
Yeah, and I can walk to the planet Zork.
The wonderful news was that Aquarion is moving from quarterly to monthly billing!
Thankfully, customers “will no longer need to wait up to 12 weeks or more to see how much water you’re using, what it’s costing you and how well your conservation efforts are working.”
Of course! I know from chatter around town that one of Westporters’ biggest concerns is we just don’t know how much water we use, on a monthly basis.
But wait! There’s more!
“Monthly billing will make it possible to detect and repair water leaks more quickly and provides greater flexibility from a budgeting perspective.”
So thank you, Aquarion! This new billing plan is very, very helpful.
Though if you truly want to help, bill us weekly.
Better yet: every time we turn on the faucet. Then we’d really find those leaks!
