No, you're not. The terms of the lease are binding on both of you. Because plenty of apartment rentals include water, sewer, and trash, there's no way you could be expected to have known it was a mistake. You agreed to pay a certain amount of rent based in part on the representation that water, sewer and trash wouldn't cost anything, and you're allowed to make them uphold that promise. When the lease is up, they can choose not to give you a new lease, to raise the rent, or to change the amount of utilities owed. Until then, they can do none of those things.
