Overdue water account list in Atlanta

Posted: Updated:
ATLANTA, Ga. -

Tens of millions of dollars are owed to the city of Atlanta Water Department.

The debt is from thousands of water accounts that are past due. In many cases customers are paying but not nearly enough.

The accounts run the gamut, from post office branches to hospitals to colleges with large balances.

Even a state lawmaker says she's had a hard time paying. Mable Thomas owes the city more than two thousand dollars.

Next week, city hall will announce a new collections policy.

As for Thomas, she says she will pay a visit to the water business office and set up a payment plan.
