In a blog on the Arizona Municipal Water Users Association website, Executive Director Kathleen Ferris, a Senior Research Fellow at Morrison Institute for Public Policy at Arizona State University, wrote about the rising cost of water and wastewater services and how it serves the communities.

“The good news?” wrote Ferris. “City water departments, like most successful businesses, are always looking for new technology and procedures to decrease the cost of daily management and operations.

Even with upcoming rate increases, water is still a bargain and cities are working to keep it that way, wrote Ferris.
