What kind of water do you have?

Most people here in eastern NC have county water. They pay a water bill each month. We have a deep well and our water comes from that. Not that we wouldn't rather have county water, but we didn't know residents were voting on it and the change over didn't pass. Idiots. The water here is hard with iron and lime which means we have to buy and maintain a water softener. Our well is 40 years old and recently started giving bursts of water and air. We finally were able to get a repair man to fix it and thank goodness we didn't have to dig a new well. I still get irritated when I remember we didn't even get to vote and just a small section of our area voted to keep using their wells. Why? Wells wear out and new wells and and water softeners are expensive. I know I should be thankful we have water...many places in the world don't...but it was such a foolish decision not to have a better solution. And we didn't even get to accept or reject it.

there should be voting, for sure. i get water from the city pipes and they maybe from our rivers. they said they will increase the water bill cause they need money for bad pipes which had broke a several times last year. no voting about that too

Here in our county here in eastern NC, we have several Sanitary Districts that provide the "county" water. When I first moved here 28 years ago and went to work for the CPA firm, auditing the Sanitary Districts was my first big assignment. Back then, the talk was that we'd have county sewer within ten years. Nope. Still using our septic tanks.
