Four hundred and twenty thousand gallons!!!!!? Our normal water useage for a May is about 150,000 gallons, with an
average City bill of about $800. When our June bill arrived, we knew we had a major water line break. Our preferred plumbing vendor, Mattox Plumbing, responded timely. That’s Chuy in the trench. Coincidentally, we discovered a second major leak behind the dining facility, which was far bigger than the one by the chapel. Our total repair bill was $25,000 and the repair was unbudgeted; but we won’t have any more $2500 water bills either. As our facilities age, repair costs become a large part of our total operating budget.
