Well, the May water bill has landed in our email.
Each month we analyse it to see where or if we can save money and/or water.
What we noticed this month was the last time we got an actual reading was way back in February. The following 3 months have been estimated.
All of the estimated readings were based from our summer usage, when we were watering our gardens.
So, my questions are, "At what point does our usage and payments level out? Will they be paying us for the month of June & July, especially as we have significantly been reducing our water usage over the last few months?"
I understand that lockdown was the reason for the first 2 months estimated readings, however May should've been an actual reading.
It really comes across as if Watercare are bleeding us financially dry, and all the while we are all doing our best to reduce and save.
I've mentioned this on here previously about how appalling our roads are, all over Auckland.
What I can't understand is why on earth DIDN'T the Auckland Transport get all of their workers out in Level 4, but preferably level 3 and do all of the repairs that are so desperately needed?
The roads are an essential requirement, and during the higher levels of lockdown would've been a perfect time to do all of the repairs.
However, this opportunity was lost and they won't get this opportunity again.
Instead, we are now dealing with all those damn cones all over the place, various pot holes, corrugations over so many roads, the seal worn out on so many - the list just goes on & on.
They will probably say that it was a money issue. That excuse doesn't fly as they are currently running around like blow flies fixing this and that all around the place now, and all the while causing so many traffic disruptions.
There are even the contractors who repaint the road marking do those now.
So, why on earth wasn't this all done in the one & only time they will get while it was so quiet on the roads?
The perfect weather has gone along with the opportunity as well as the perfectly empty roads.
