I already cut down to one shower a week. I know I stink but its good for the environment. Follow suit everyone!
Thanks for listening.

In the past seven years my price of water has gone up 8% each year. That's per cubic foot, not my actual bill. In order to save money, we have cut back water use 8-10% per year, every year. So we keep paying the same for less and less water. What is the end game here?
Water rates have increased YEARLY since 1995 through EBMUD. Part of their problem is not "stepping in line" since the great recession of 2007-2009 in cutting employee benefits as they continue to pay their employees full medical and that of their immediate families. As a public agency, if they would make an effort to curtail this vast expense in their overhead, maybe I would have more faith in their management. As it is, I'm guessing their pension packages are pretty frightening as well.
El Nino's arrival by October is going to take care of much of our concerns with the current water shortage, and yet if they continue in San Ramon to allow building projects like the upcoming Faria northwest of San Ramon - some 750 homes/apts? Then I see little end to containment of this issue in any respect.
