Faulty water meter to blame for $28,000 bill

It turns out a defective water meter is to blame for a $28,000 St. Catharines water bill.

Earlier this week we brought you the story of Carmen Bedard, the resident who received the astronomical bill.

When she got the bill she began checking for leaks in her home but couldn't find anything that would explain the costly bill.

Officials with the city visited her home yesterday to check the meter and determined it was faulty.

Carmen hopes her story helps others in the same position because she says if her meter was faulty others may be as well.

As for how much she owes now, Carmen says they voided her entire bill.
