    We have a water supply bill, which is £56.13 for September 2013 to june 2014. We have another bill for waste water and drainage etc etc. This is £125.83 for September 2013- march 2014. I would've thought that water supply would be more expensive than drainage ??? Obviously that's what we have to pay and it's probably right, it just seems a bit strange.

    it's normal for wastewater to be more expensive than water supply.

    Fwiw The biggest single item on my Water bill is 'surface water & highway drainage' which is a flat charge for being rained on and nothing to do with meter readings at all.
    They want to make sure they're getting paid even if you take all the water conservation advice

    Mm my supply and waste subtotals are more nearly equal than yours. Which is on United utilities.
