"Nobody in the Southeast has been paying the true price of water"
April 28, 2008
The deep and lingering drought that's been punishing the South for some time is now causing water rates to rise
, as water conservation has decreased the amount of revenue available to pay the fixed costs of operating utilities, like salaries and debt installments. The same effects -- rising prices coupled with tighter conservation requirements -- are certain to find their way to much of the rest of the country, especially the Great Plains.
We can help you with municipal water pumps and products
, including covers for open-air reservoirs
to reduce evaporation losses. Please feel free to contact us
with your questions.
