With all the rain we’ve had over the last 6 weeks things must be getting complicated for the folks at ACTEW. Thoughts must be going something like this, “Theres so much rain people aren’t watering their gardens and making us money. I know lets up the price of water so when they do use it, it costs more. Yeah and then lets decrease the restrictions so that they use even more so that makes us even more money. Yeah thats a great idea too. Wow, we are teh roxors.”
Stories from the ABC on the recommended water price hike, why a water price hike is bad for low income earners (also lets us know that there will be public hearings on the proposed price hikes in Feb) and possible lessening of restrictions to allow use of sprinklers.
