Why am I paying more for less water?

Posted by George J Janczyn on March 27, 2010

“Climate change and increasing demand have greatly reduced the flexibility and resilience of the last century’s infrastructure investments.” / Lester Snow, Department of Water Resources, in California Water Plan 2009 Highlights.

“Deferred maintenance is coming due and many districts are facing the failure of systems installed in the fifties or before. Reliability must be paid for anew, and that’s why districts will need to charge more even as they’re asking people to use less water.” / On the Public Record.
