Water conservation is essential to keep your bills and rates low.
As we cope with higher and higher water bills, water conservation is an alternative to paying higher costs for water. Water companies struggle in their efforts to provide enough water to meet customer needs at a reasonable cost. Building new water systems is expensive, and those expenses are passed directly to customers. By conserving water, you have more control over your bills and can help delay the need for expensive system upgrades that lead to higher rates.
Below you will find some easy, low cost ways to reduce your home’s water consumption.
The UTC regulates privately-owned water companies, that serve more than 100 customers or have charges that exceed an average of $557 per customer per year. The commission does not regulate the rates or services of city, town or county water systems, Public Utility Districts, cooperative or homeowners’ associations.
