CCR Report

Verona Special Utility District is required by TCEQ to provide to all our water customers a copy of the 2015 Consumer Confidence Report (CCR).  Click here to read our report.

WATER BILLS

Some customers are not getting their water bills.  I assure you all water bills are being mailed out around the 30th of each month and you should receive them no later than the 6th of the month.  If you have not received your bill by the 10th of the month, please call the office to see what is due as your bill is due by the 20th of the month.  These postcard bills are so easy to get stuck to another bill and sometimes they even are found in the road and ditches.  If the problem continues, please contact your local postmaster as this is not a problem of this office.  As always, please call us for any concerns you might have.

  • the amount of water in Florida's Lake Okeechobee (669 square miles).
  • the amount of water used in one year by 11 million homes.

AND . . . 

  • the amount of water wasted every year by household water leaks. Washington Post

That's really an astounding figure. Every year, enough water to serve 11 million homes is needlessly wasted. (EPA ) Down the drain. That leaky faucet or constantly-running toilet is more than just an annoyance; it is wasting water at an alarming rate.
