VERIFY: Is the Airway Heights water contamination increasing water bills?.
AIRWAY HEIGHTS, Wash. – Several residents in Airway Heights reported water bills with much higher charges than usual.
Kevin Anderson with the City of Airway Heights said there have been no adjustments to water rates due to the recent PFOS/PFOA contamination.
Additionally, City Manager Albert Tripp said the most recent billing cycle was from April 19 through May 18.
“If a particular water customer saw an unusually high bill, it would be due entirely to water usage,” Anderson said in an email.
Anderson said the majority of the time, high water usage and higher bills are caused by a customer’s own leaky plumbing.
In conclusion, it is verified that water contamination in Airway Heights is not causing an increase in water bills.
