Note: I separated my water bill from other line items on my monthly City of Raleigh bill, which also includes solid waste removal, recycling and stormwater fees. These other fees totaled about $15/month in 2012. Also, my house was built in 1989, though I remodeled it when I bought it out of foreclosure in 2010 -- so that's why all of my appliances are new. I installed high efficiency aerators (.5 gpm) on all faucets except the kitchen sink as well as high efficiency shower heads (1.5 gpm) in both showers. I think my toilets are the most efficient (at 0.8 gal/flush) you can buy today, unless you have an outhouse.
