Since 2008 I have been covering the research of the Baltimore Water Bill Woman (Linda Stewart). Ms. Stewart has tried very hard to call attention to the broken Baltimore water billing system. On numerous occasions Ms. Stewart has shared ridiculous examples of water bill irregularities. Her research has inspired me to cover the water bill issue. Some classic water bill related articles of mine can be found here, here, here, and here.
Water bills can be random and based on no real measurement. This is something that should scare everyone. Finally today the Baltimore Sun is confirming what the Baltimore Water Bill Woman and I have been saying for years: 65,000 in city, county likely overcharged on water bills, auditor says. WBAL TV is also covering the story. Sadly this is just the tip of the iceberg.
