December 28 2011 I received my utility bill from Burbank Water and Power.
I was somewhat shocked that nobody had called me or visited me from BWP earlier in the month. I would have thought that with the hourly metering they have in their system it would have triggered some sort of alarm.
Clearly there must be a geyser at my house or some sort of major event where water would be noticed flowing down the street in a river.
My average yearly consumption went from 45 gallons per day to over 545 gallons per day. My usage for the year went from 1,466 gallons to 18,011 gallons.
I called them.
