Johnson County Wastewater charged the De Soto School District for about 9 million gallons of water used to keep new sod alive during three dry months during the summer of 2012. But because most water for landscaping goes straight into the ground instead of into wastewater treatment lines, it shouldn’t have been included in the district’s bill. Johnson County Wastewater issued a refund check for $26,680 after the school district questioned its bill.
