JackElliott...I would get someone to check you have no leaks because your 77 €uros per month is enough for 3 households....I have sheep, ponies, donkeys, dogs, cats, Lovebirds who all have fresh water every day, garden & plants, plus all the usual household usage & I pay 23 €uros per month...so something not right with your high payments.

We pay ours at the post office.  One thing that shocked me moving from the country side to a village was the price of drains ect was higher than our water consumption.

It would be extremely unusual (unlikely even !) if methods of payments and where to pay are not marked on the bill. In all my years in France I have never had a utility bill which did  not state how and where to pay.

77 euros a montb for water is astronomical, even if you are on mains drainage. As for payment, send a rib from your chequebook to the water company in the envelope they would have sent with the bill.

We sold our house in 2013 and moved back to the UK.  SAUR are still sending us bills even though they were given notice of our sale and reading at that time !!

Are you on mains drainage ?  You may have a bill for this as well as water charges.

( unless you are cofusing the payment  with another charge - tax habitation/fonciere?)

The bill should state what it is for  & where to pay -  or send cheque.

77 euros a month seems an incredible amount to me; ours is about 150 a year Personally I would check the meter reading and check that you do not have a leak.In respect of paying who provides the water is it the commune or a private company

is the estimated reading printed on this bill close to the actual reading on your meter.  It might be best to check if you are paying the right amount each month.  There are two of us and we pay about 300 euros a year for our water.
