Water costs are rising at alarming rates. Sewage fees are often greater than water rates.
Growing water demand, rising costs of water and sewer, uncertain water supplies and inefficient water using equipment challenge business, institutions and recreational facilities to come up with better water management.
As urban and suburban populations grow, they are overwhelming our aging water and sewage systems. At the same time, it is becoming increasingly more difficult and expensive for communities to develop new water supplies and build wastewater treatment facilities.
Because of infrastructure limitations and water shortages the effects of rising water costs are being felt more and more. Businesses and institutions realize higher operating expenses due to increased water and sewer rates, and these increased expenses often must be passed on to consumers or ratepayers.
