Water Rates going up
Sometimes it doesn't pay to conserve water. Take this example from Framingham, Mass:
The increase, which selectmen are expected to vote on July 13, would tack an extra $74 onto the average family's bill. The hike is driven by a drop in water consumption and a higher assessment Framingham must pay the Massachusetts Water Resources Authority, Kelley told the board during a preliminary rate hearing.
This means that consumers that used less water are now going to have to pay more? Shouldn't consumer be rewarded for conserving water?
