Gary changed the water in his aquarium while I was sleeping. (Still working night shift.) When I woke up, I asked - didn't you have to let the water sit a bit before putting the fish in it? He said no. Don't you need to let the chlorine evaporate off?
He told me that since our water comes from a well, it requires no processing. I am still trying to get my mind around that - water from our tap is pure and tastes wonderful - and it is coming from the ground with no processing. Really?
So no water payment? No. No sewer payment? No. And those in our neighborhood each have our own well, so we don't have to compete for water.
