#Jacob on May 09, 2018 :
What is the average cost of water in Birmingham AL per month.
#JR on Sep 27, 2016 :
This is not correct. I live in a 915sq ft condo my electric and gas bills are collectively a min $140 water is 1/3 of my dues $90 and then there's garbage in top of that. So water is one of the most expensive bills in Birmingham over $10 a linear cubic foot. This part of living in Birmingham is closer to $250 a month for a 915sq ft apt.
