A 91-year-old woman in Fulton County, Georgia received a $27,000 water bill. Ruth Starks said she had a stroke five years ago and her family has been helping her pay her bills. Apparently not because after receiving the bill she was puzzled.
She is now afraid the company might shut off her water. She also said "Why they didn’t they send me some kind of notice and let me know my water bill wasn’t being paid?" Starks said, claiming that she hasn’t received a water bill in years. The water department is currently working on a solution.
