$119.00

Water conservation-oriented rates are an effective tool for reducing water use in states and cities that are faced with drought, shrinking water supplies, or other reasons to conserve water. Water Conservation-Oriented Rates: Strategies to Extend Supply, Promote Equity, and Meet Minimum  Flow Levels, discusses rate structures that encourage water conservation: drought demand rates, excess use rates or excess surcharges, inclining block rates, and seasonal rates. The book explores implementation issues, economic issues for the utility and the consumer (especially low-income consumers), advantages and disadvantages, which rate type is suitable for specific customer groups or situations, and real-world utility experiences with conservation rates.
