The Cost of Water

The Cost of Water

Josh Ellis. Rain is free, but when it comes to water, everything else – treatment, pumps, pipes, drains, meters, more treatment – comes with a cost. Problems arise when the price we pay doesn’t match the cost. Whether the pipes leak, mains break, or our waterways get contaminated is up to us. We get what we pay for… so in a metropolitan region with, hundreds of sewage discharge points to our rivers, thousands of miles of pipe, millions of people, and billions of square feet of impervious pavement, what exactly should we be paying for when it comes to water? Join CAF and the Metropolitan Planning Council’s Josh Ellis for a lunchtime discussion of the dollars and cents/sense of our region’s water resources.
