The Costs of Water!

As with all things in life, the price you pay for your water can vary significantly from state to state.  Here are the most expensive (top five) and the least expensive (top five) states for the average annual household bill.  The costs are as of January 2015, rounded to the nearest dollar, and based upon the consumption of a 60,000 gallons per year.  Disclaimer: none of the 500 largest community water systems (VT and WY) or the systems privately owned (ID and WV) were included in this study.  Oklahoma’s annual expenditure per household for water is at $297.

Most expended
1. Hawaii ($606)
2. Nevada ($428)
3. District of Columbia ($420)
4. California ($386)
5. Pennsylvania ($382)

Least expended
1. Louisiana ($187)
2. South Carolina ($203)
3.  Nebraska ($224)
4. Utah ($232)
5. Minnesota ($236)
