Family Charged $4,400 For Water Bill

Image opening up your water bill to find out you’ve been charged $4,400. The Do Family in Garden Grove, California was charged that much for allegedly using the equivalent of 50 swimming pools of water; approximately 760,000 gallons.

Luke Do said, “We are a family of three, just my wife, myself and my son. We don’t have a swimming pool.”

The city ran tests on the meter and found no problems so the family is responsible for the bill. Garden Grove offered the Do family a payment plan for the amount.
Luke said, “I feel very helpless because they are a public utility and we have to go through them for water and now, if we don’t pay this bill they can cut us off so we have our hands tied.”
