Water Leak Leaves Student With $16,000 Utility Bill

waterAn undetected water leak has left a Northern Arizona University student with a huge water bill.  The city of Flagstaff says it is working out an agreement with the student's landlord after the utilities department billed the student more than $16,000. 

The student's meter registered more than 1.4 million-gallons – enough to shower non-stop for a year. 

The Arizona Daily Sun reports that the water was dropping into a fissure under the home, leaving no signs of leaks.  A utility worker initially concluded that the meter must have malfunctioned.
