If the lease has not yet expired, there is no basis for the landlord to charge a tenant for water (and sewer) charges. Wait until fall, this landlord might try to charge the tenants for the oil or gas used to heat the building.

: If you have a lease and it says that the resident will pay electricity and
: cable and the apartments will pay gas, water and garbage, can the landlord
: make you start paying part of the water bill? Understand that there is only
: one water bill per building and not per apartment. Also, the landlord is
: making each apartment pay $45.00 regardless of what size the apartment is.
: Also, anyone who is on housing, the elderly or an employee does not have to
: pay the $45.00 extra. I need an immediate response because this is mostly
: an Hispanic property and I feel the landlord is taking advantage of them
: because alot are illegals and therefore, are afraid of being deported. I say
: as long as they are paying rent each month, they still have rights as
: tenants.
