Would you be willing to pay 30 - 50 percent more for your tap water for infrastructure improvements?


Why or why not?

    I agree. What's being done in Las Vegas is working and they aren't only conserving water but attempting to address infrastructure on a more ongoing basis than in other cities so it doesn't get so costly to repair/overhaul.

    You are so right. I saw a PBS documentary that showed a small town that had problems with sewage running into the streets and showed problems with sewage in Atlanta until people got fed up. But many people only want to pay for things they can see.

    To improve deteriorating infrastructure that gets water to and from your home (not from the curb to your home - that's private) but the city infrastructures where applicable which are in need of repair or replacement in some areas.

    Sorry I wasn't more clear but yes, would you pay more in cases where the public system must have a major overhaul?

    I used to live in Lakeland, Florida and know exactly what you're talking about. I've never been anywhere that had water that bad. At best it was the color of lemonade, at worst funky iced tea that smelled very bad. I doubt there is any remedy for it

    But, it would be pretty hard for you to take a shower if you didn't have any water in your house. What about washing your hands? cooking your food? The issue is broader than just your drinking water!
