Water bill nightmare
After reading the recent article ‘English couple fight council over water bill’ (The Resident, February 10), I would like to mention that my wife and I have just been in the same situation. We received two water bills, one after the other, accumulating to 1,800 euros. Again, there are only three of us and also we asked the same question – why did Silves câmara not pick up on the problem and stop the situation, considering the serious drought problems that the Algarve was having? We are fighting it, but we are devastated as we only moved here last September and these were our first two bills. We don’t seem to be having much luck with the câmara and it is forcing us to rethink our situation as to whether we can stay here.
Mr and Mrs Bond, Silves
