“If you took the total amount of water and divided it by two houses, it doesn’t even make that list. I try to walk the walk and not just talk the talk. I don’t live that way,” Bates said.
Dr. Jeff Crook’s family shares the meter with the Bates family. The Crook home was one of the last homes built in that neighborhood.
To the best of Bates’ knowledge, the owners of the two homes at that time put in a private water line and shared the expenses because the Crook home didn’t have a water well.
It’s an odd circumstance that resulted in two neighbors sharing a water meter.
