San Diego Explained: Lower Water Usage Doesn’t Mean Lower Bills

San Diegans went from wastefully using water hoses to clean driveways and sidewalks [1]to becoming a drought-conscience community that used a lot less water than expected in recent years. The low water demand is expected to linger for the next 25 years. [2]

Some might assume lower water usage would mean lower water bills, but that didn’t happen [3].

In this week’s San Diego Explained, VOSD’s Ry Rivard and NBC 7’s Monica Dean describe why decreased water usage didn’t decrease San Diegans’ water bills.
