The following information is needed to process the final bill: service address, closing date, the name of the new owner, and the name, telephone number, and fax number of the lawyer representing the seller.

What are the water rates for the Queensbury Consolidated Water District?

Your water bill is broken into three categories:
0 - 8,000 gallons = $20.00
Over 8,000 - 4 million gallons = $20.00 plus $1.85 for each additional 1,000 gallons
Over 4 million gallons = $20.00 plus $1.85 for each additional 1,000 gallons up to 4 million gallons, then $1.15 for each additional 1000 gallons
Your total water bill would be the sum of all three components.

What is the average water bill for a family with two adults and two children?

There is no possible way to measure what an average water bill for a family of four would be. Every family has too many different activities within a home to be able to measure the average usage of a family. Water bills may range from $20 to several hundred dollars per quarter.
