Wednesday, Nov. 18, 2009 | I would like to see local agencies do more to link the cost of water to the use of water. The biggest part of my monthly water bill is not a charge for water used, it’s for infrastructure. A shower that costs 15 cents provides no incentive to save water. Wasting water is what causes us to think we need to spend huge amounts of money on increasing the size of dams and building desalination plants. In this way, water wasters are being subsidized by the rest of us. When are we going to wake up an start billing users for the real cost of water?
