“Just got a water bill for over $1,200”

“Dear PoPville,

I just got a water bill for over $1,200. We purchased a house in December 2021 and didn’t receive any water bills until yesterday. For the past year I have called DC water every month to figure out why we weren’t receiving bills and they kept telling me to wait for a bill in the mail.

I thought it was odd but didn’t have any choice but to wait. Yesterday (12/5) the bill finally arrived, apparently for the period from December 2021 through November 2022, and it’s for over $1,200. Is this normal? It doesn’t seem normal. Does DC Water typically send one bill per year? Do I need to opt-in to monthly water bills?”
