Thomas St NW household receives exorbitant DC Water bill

See this message from a Thomas Street NW resident:

I just got billed for 1,160 days of water service, with an automatic deduction form my bank account of $1,700. Has anyone else had this happen to them?

  1. Hi,

    I have not heard of this extent of a problem before. What I suspect has happened is that when the Thomas Street water-sewer construction occurred several years ago, WASA (at that time) suspended billing for the part of the duration of the project until the lead service lines were replaced. Then a bill covering several months was issued. Your property sounds like it might have fallen through the cracks and now DC Water is catching up. If you need help working something out with DC Water, please let me know.

    Take care,
