sustainable water rates gate alternatives for discussion
Sustainable water rates gate – alternatives for discussion
  • Alternative 1 – Water budget-based rates
  • Alternative 2 – Rates deemed “as effective as” water budget-based rates:
    • Water use efficiency
    • Economically-viable
    • Runoff reduction
    • Changes the water ethic
  • Alternative 3 – No gate (compliance with CUWCC BMPs only)
