Water Cost

Posted by

In many areas, the cost of water is rising at a rate faster that the rate of inflation. Several factors are driving the increase including population growth, increased urban sprawl and generally higher consumption. Today, there is a water main break approximately every two minutes in the U.S. Consequently, the cost of maintaining an aging distribution grid is being passed along to businesses and consumers at a dramatic rate. The American Water Works Association, an industry trade group, estimates that restoring existing pipes to maintain service will require as much as $US 1 trillion over the next 25 years.

One way to combat these ever-rising costs is to work toward meaningful conservation. The EPA has created a easy-to-use calculator - take a look and see how your can save money by conserving water in your home.
