$100,000 water bills soak residents of Brockton, Massachusetts

$100,000 water bill?
$100,000 water bill?

Sure, it's been a scorching summer on the East Coast, but even in this heat some residents of Brockton, Massachusetts were dumbfounded to receive water bills as high as $100,000.

If the residents of Brockton are paying what I'm paying for water in Ohio, $.0031 per cubic foot, then $100,000 would fill a tank the length (300 feet) and breadth (160 feet) of a football field to about the height of an 18-story building. Put another way, it would fill up a third of the Dallas Cowboy's new Texas Stadium.
