Long Live Expensive Water

The late-summer Sturm und Drang over high water rates made it to the Dallas City Council this week, where Dallas Water Utilities Director Jody Puckett explained that, calm down, your water meter’s fine, you probably don’t have a leak, you just probably forgot during the weird monsoons of spring and early summer how much it costs to dump thousands of gallons of water per month onto your lawn. That and the fact that water rates have increased significantly over the past few years. The city now charges $7.63 for every 1,000 gallons of water used above 15,000, an increase of 22 percent since 2012.
