Question: Was a cost of service study provided only for potable water and waste? If I understand a cost of service analysis, shouldn't it include all products and services, since reuse water and potable water share the same attributes: cost of production, cost of transmission, cost of distribution, etc.
So is the going cost for reuse water accurate, in keeping with the principles of COS? Or do we just put in a ratio based on potable water cost? How accurate is that? Geez, I would have thought Mr. Magel would have welcomed that effort, but interestingly enough, he chose to lament that reuse water users paid full price (potable water rates) for two years for reuse water.
Guess what, Mr. Magel, single family homes have been paying full price for irrigation water since the inception of this island by design.
May I suggest reuse water be priced at 80% of potable water in keeping with AWWA rate surveys for reuse water.
Just a thought!
