800.442.6655. They will ask youto read your water meter which islocated next to your water heaterand then will compare that read-ing with their records. If there isa discrepancy, they will issue youa credit or send a technician outto check your meter. The metersdo have batteries in them thathave to be replaced on periodi-cally. You may also pay your bill onlineat http\\:www.customerfirst.net.If you have any questions aboutour new water submetering com-pany, please give our managementoffice a call.
 As you know, we replaced our water company with American Water and Energy Savers in Feb-ruary of this year. The responseto our new company has beenoverwhelmingly positive. Notonly do our new water bills spellout in exact terms what our waterand sewer rates are, the bills areactually easy to read.Collier County imposed a 30% water surcharge on each bill as aresult of the current drought.This was done in February. Priorto that, the water surcharge was15%. In April, they went back toPhase 2 water restrictions whichmeans we are back to a 15% wa-ter surcharge. When our waterrestrictions are lifted, the watersurcharge will no longer apply to water usage and you will see yourmonthly bill decrease. Another plus with our new watersubmetering company is theirquick response time when there isa problem with a meter or aninvoice. We have had residentstell me they were given instantcredits after calling American Water and giving them their me-ter reading. We encourage any resident thatfeels their water bill is higher thannormal (not including the watersurcharge from Collier County)to call American Water at
