Your Call: How are water prices set in California?
On the July 14th edition of Your Call, we’ll continue our week-long series on solution to the state’s water crisis by discussing the price of water.
Two-thirds of water districts use some form of tiered water pricing to encourage conservation, but conservation measures have led to higher rates. And there is no single price that California farmers pay. How should water pricing change? And what if farmers had to buy water on the open market? Join the conversation on the next Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.
