RE:Evict heavy water user?
First you have to change the mindset regarding water/sewer use, you are on the tenant’s side, you’re trying to keep the overall utilities low and mitigating the necessity of raising everybody’s rent. We have used the following wording as the first notice of a MHP Conservation Plan:
In an effort to promote water conservation and control the rapidly increasing use (and cost) of water, we have agreed to have _______________________ sub-meter our MHP community for water and sewer service. Most communities throughout the state are now sub-metered or will be sub-metered in the near future.
We hope with sub-metering: Promote water conservation by our residents: Identify excessive water usage; Be proactive in identifying water leaks; and Mitigate any potential catastrophic plumbing failures in your home. We anticipate a reduction in water use/wastes by 25% or more.
___Now is the time to locate water leaks within your home. Whether you have a specific leak repair, other request, complaint, or simply a suggestion, please contact the manager. We would like to discuss your concerns in person; so, once again, please stop by and talk to us. A quality MHP community is something we won’t compromise."
We have good feed back from residents when they know they are conserving water.
We’re here to answer your water sub-metering questions.
