@Erich thanks for doing this!
@Erich if the city reverts to the previous rate structure, wouldn't _that_ be considered a tax, and expose the city to legal liability?
@Erich is it fair to say that most tier 4 people are doing something really abnormal? filling a swimming pool? or does this get into people who are just gardening and watering every day?
@csalzman watering an average lawn a few times a week likely puts you at or near. a hose puts out a CCF every 30 minutes. it adds up quickly
@dzombak @csalzman @Erich @sstrudeau BTW here in California a court recently found that tiered water rates are in violation of the state constitution. Public water providers are not permitted to charge more than the calculated cost of providing the water. IOW, the actual water is held to be without value. So given current rates, my cost for CCF n+1 is less than what I paid for CCF 1 when I lived in Ann Arbor.
