I have just received a bill for my water for the last quarter and it is over $120 more than what it would normally be as I had grown a new lawn and watered the garden over the summer. Now I'm about to rent this house out and I'm wondering if the tenants can pay for excess water usage while they lease the property? There is veggie gardens and new lawns so they might also use a lot of water as they have children etc too. This is in the Port Stephens council area. What do others do regarding water usage? I would hate to get a huge bill in 3 months time for water from the tenants.
