  1. I need some help with my sewer bill. I recently received a bill from city of tulsa stating i owed them $1700 for sewer charges for the past 36 months. we never received a bill from them, ever.I live in Turly and use their water. Now the water dpt in turly claims my average useage over winter months was 5000 gal. I live by myself, dont have a dishwasher,dont water my lawn my house has only one bathroom.My actual current useage has been from 600 gal to 2200 gal. my water bill averages 25 to 40 dollars. If youi divide the back bill of 1700 by 36 months the city is charging me about $47 a month. its own posted sewer rates are $3.95 a thousand. So instead of a realistic bill of $284 ( 2000 gal ave time $3.95 times 36 months} They are threatening me that if i dont pay that back bill they will cut my water off. i keep my water bill paid and current. I believe the fat lady who works in turly water dept. delibertly provided the city of tulsa with an inflated useage consumption just because she doesnt like the citizens of Turly. Anyway im a retired single man on fixed income can you get this overbill straightened out before they cut my water off. I feel like a victim of extortion.

  2. Now that I’ve upgraded I can’t log on to pay billing. and you offer no solution on your home page. Plus you never answered my last email. I need to drill my own water well in my back yard as your online svc is terrible.Jeeze
