'Save water, pay extra (http://www.ajc.com/metro/content/metro/stories/2008/04/16/water_0417.html?cxntlid=homepage_tab_newstab - broken link)

This really does amaze me!

That's pretty darn screwed up.

I live in CA where my water bill makes it up to $75 a month in the summer -- we are always hearing about conserving blah blah, well now I realize why they don't REALLY push it. BIG loss of money if I let my lawns go brown, eh?

Not sure what can be done to get the money the Water district needs to operate and pay off debt, but charging more for the water people are using seems unfair, when they are working so hard to conserve.
