    Re: A new meaning for "pay as you go"

    I would prefer this to paying a fixed freak'n price for my sewage.

    I tried conserving water until I got my second or third water bill and saw that all of my effort was saving me all of maybe $1.00 each month

    Then I said to hell with it and started living comfortably


    Oh we will fight, fight, fight for Iowa State,
    and may her colors ever fly!!!

    Re: A new meaning for "pay as you go"

    comfortably isn't the best word for that but I'm too tired / lazy to find a better one

    I stopped going out of my way to conserve, take shorter showers, etc because it makes little difference. Still affects my power bill but not much incentive in the water department

    Doesn't Ames already do this? I thought that we were charged sewage for every gallon of water we used.

    This is why I flush only once a week, whether the toilet is full or not.


    Gene Smith, 1993-2000. 7 years, 6 NCAA's, 1 bowl game. Revenue sports postseason participation 50%. Good.
    Bruce Vandevelde, 2000-20005. 5 years, 4 bowl games, 2 NCAA's, 2 NIT's. Postseason participation 80%. Better.
    Jamie Pollard, 2005-. 4 years. 1 bowl game, 0 NCAA's, 0 NIT's. Postseason participation: 13%. The next big step.

    My ignore list: splitidentity, tarheelhawk,superdorf, clones_jer. That is all.

    My local utility bases monthly sewer charges on the average water usage from Dec, Jan, Feb, & Mar. Seems to work OK as you basically pay for usage without being dinged for summer lawn watering.

    So, I guess the saying "if it's yellow, let it mellow. If it's brown, flush it down," really comes into effect here.

    I lived in Aus for a while once and Perth has massive water problems.
