Water Price Increase in Los Angeles

03.25.2018 | Category, News

According to Circle of Blue, a non-profit organization which covers news and collects data on water usage, water rates have been steadily increasing over the years.

Some major cities such as Los Angeles, had nearly 30% increase in the monthly cost between 2016 and 2017. It is expected to increase another 15% over the next few years. Currently many solutions are being proposed to keep the cost as low as possible, but currently the increase is unavoidable due to maintenance of aging infrastructure.

Although it is not possible to decrease the cost of water prices, it is possible to reduce the total water consumption. Kurapia can be irrigated at 20% of ETo, and reduce water usage and ultimately, the overall cost of monthly rates.
