Is it possible people used to open the faucets and let the water run when it was cheap and now that prices are raising people are being more
Nope. From the article.
"Figures provided by the department show that residential water use has fallen 42 percent, from around 98,000 gallons per household in 1980 to about
57,000 gallons last year. Consumption has fallen 20 percent in the last six years alone."
I'm sure that higher prices across the board cause people to rethink priorities. But it just makes sense that if you use less (insert anything here)
you should be charged less, not more.
It's not like water is a computer that can be, and often needs to be upgraded.
