Have stayed at many campgrounds that charge for extra water use. Our rig was VERY dirty at the time, so I asked, and the owner only charged a minimal extra water fee. Very few communities have free or even cheap water any more. If they do, the price will be included in your tax bills. Just take a look at where the water is coming from, and what it takes to make it safe for you to use.

We spent a month in Jacksonville.(Sun Resort) No fee for electric or water. $10 fee to wash our truck and 5th wheel. There were meters on the pedestals so longer stays might be metered. Very happy with that park.

by what measure is FL overpopulated. 2019 estimate is ~20-million with an estimated growth rate of 1.54%.


In my book, that is overpopulated. Here in Oregon we have a little over 4 million, and I think it is way overpopulated every time I go down town.

counter-intuitive but true. but there are more people chasing that water putting the 1st rule of economics into play. and while the amount of water hasn't changed its location certainly has.

Just wait until they add sewer fee to the water bill. You will stroke out. [emoticon]

Yes but, the cost of processing the water is only going up.

Depends on relative scarcity or the relative costs of potable water in the local area. There are several conditions that might result in this situation: Breakdown at processing plant; lowering of acquafer; salination of aquafer; negative test results on required water samples; whatever.

There are several RV Parks in Yuma, AZ. that have started to charge for water. They are long term snowbird parks.
