31 Aug 2021  |  Episode #34  |  with Erin Bonney Casey

For the sixth consecutive year, Bluefield Research has embarked upon an analysis of the water and wastewater rates in the U.S. and the impacts on residential water and wastewater bills. Bluefield’s Erin Bonney Casey shares her perspective on her recent analysis of utility water rates and potential impacts of drought on customer water bills. The analysis comes at a time when the Colorado River Basin is under significant threat, so much so that water allocations are being cut for lower basin states. A simple question to ask is, should our water rates go up based on supply and demand?
