Selma Couple Deals with Excessive Water Bill


By George McDonald

From the West Alabama Newsroom--  Imagine opening your monthly water bill and instead of the usual $35 dollar water bill -- you get one for more than $500 dollars. What do you do?

A couple in Selma finds themselves in that exact situation. Steve and Lola Hill say they were shocked to get a one month water bill for $574 dollars.

They say their monthly water bill averages about 31-dollars a month. Now they're going through the process of trying to find -- and fix the problem.

"Something going on wrong," said Steve Hill. "This is a restaurant water bill. This is a car wash water bill. This is not a family of two."

The Selma Water and Sewer Board is investigating what may have caused the couple's water bill to spike.
