Report: NIH Delinquent for $491K on Water Bill

The National Institutes of Health owes the Washington Suburban Sanitary Commission nearly $1 million, The Gazette reports.

Bethesda's National Institutes of Health owes the Washington Suburban Sanitary Commission nearly $1 million and is delinquent by nearly $491,000 on the bill, The Gazette reports.

The outstanding debt made up much of the $670,000 that was owed WSSC by federal agencies in November, according to the report.

An NIH spokesman told The Gazette that a June and August bill were processed late. The first was paid, the spokesman said, and the second should be remitted to WSSC shortly, which should bring the account balance to zero.

Totally remarkable. I presume this means that we're all entitled to pay our bills five months late without consequences, right? :)

Wow, as an employee of NIH, I am totally embarrassed.
