Man shocked by huge water bill

A WATER plant in Shanghai's Songjiang District apologized to a resident who said he got an "unbelievable" 223,997.80 yuan (US$35,782) water bill yesterday.

An employee misread 108 tons on the water meter as 105,101 tons. The actual fee the resident, surnamed Chu, should pay is 15.68 yuan, the plant said. A new bill has been sent and the employee will apologize in person.
